Benefits of Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride works to prevent the onset of erosion and to restore minerals to areas of the tooth where bacteria may have caused enamel erosion. Fluoride also works to inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria that can cause decay and cavities. Fluoride is beneficial to both children and adults, and the earlier an individual is exposed to fluoride the less likely they are to develop cavities later in life.
Fluoride Treatment & Your Dentist
Professional fluoride treatment does not take very long and is generally a comfortable procedure. Your dentist will use a strong concentration of fluoride in the form of a gel, foam or a varnish.
Do I Require Fluoride Treatment?
Your dentist will determine whether or not you require fluoride treatment. This will generally depend on the overall health of your teeth, the genetics of your teeth, and whether or not you are susceptible to cavities and decay.
