How do flouride treatments help?

It's important to note that fluoride treatment should be administered under the guidance of a dental professional. They can assess your specific needs and determine the appropriate frequency and type of fluoride treatment that will best benefit your oral health.

  • Strengthens tooth enamel

    Fluoride helps to strengthen the enamel, which is the outer layer of the teeth. It promotes remineralization, where minerals such as calcium and phosphate are deposited back into the enamel, making it more resistant to acid attacks from bacteria and acidic foods or drinks. This helps to prevent tooth decay and cavities.

  • Reduces risk of tooth decay

    Fluoride treatment has been shown to significantly reduce the risk of tooth decay in both children and adults. It helps to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria in the mouth and prevents the formation of plaque, which is a sticky film that can erode tooth enamel and lead to cavities.

  • Reverses early stages of tooth decay

    In the early stages of tooth decay, when the enamel is starting to demineralize and form small areas of decay called white spots, fluoride treatment can help reverse this process. The fluoride ions penetrate the enamel and attract minerals to rebuild and strengthen the weakened areas, preventing further progression of decay.

  • Safe and non-invasive

    Fluoride treatment is a safe and non-invasive procedure. It can be applied topically in the form of gels, foams, varnishes, or rinses during a routine dental visit. The application is quick and painless, making it suitable for patients of all ages, including children.

  • Cost-effective

    Fluoride treatment is a cost-effective way to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Compared to the costs associated with treating dental problems caused by untreated tooth decay, such as fillings, root canals, or extractions, fluoride treatment is a relatively inexpensive preventive measure.

  • Suitable for individuals at higher risk of tooth decay

    Some individuals are at a higher risk of developing tooth decay due to factors such as poor oral hygiene, a history of cavities, dry mouth, or certain medical conditions. Fluoride treatment is particularly beneficial for these individuals as it provides an extra layer of protection against tooth decay and helps maintain good oral health.
