What is Fluoride

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally and helps in the prevention of cavities and rebuilding of the tooth enamel. Fluoride will reverse the early signs of tooth decay. Topical fluoride is applied directly to the teeth like in the use of toothpaste, mouth rinses, and treatment in a dental office. There is systematic fluoride that is found in water or dietary fluoride.

Advantages of fluoride Treatment

Fluoride will help in the rebuilding of the tooth enamel and replenishing the lost calcium and phosphate minerals that are found in saliva. If a dentist applies fluoride treatments to your teeth then it means that you are at high risk of erosion and tooth decay. The dentist will apply fluoride if you have a dry mouth, weak enamel or poor oral health, or even crowns.

Fluoride Treatments

You will only use less time in the dental office if you have fluoride treatments. The dentist will use a gel, foam, or varnish. Do not eat or drink for about 30 minutes after the application of fluoride. Our dental team will guide you on what to do after fluoride application.
