Fluoride Application

Awards

Help me to

Fluoride has been an essential part of dental health for decades. It is a natural mineral that helps to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. Application of fluoride can help to prevent cavities and other forms of decay by strengthening tooth enamel.

What is fluoride application?

Fluoride application is a treatment that uses a concentrated fluoride varnish to strengthen teeth and prevent decay. Your dentist or hygienist will apply the fluoride directly to your teeth, which will have a far greater impact than fluoride found in water or toothpaste.

It only takes a few minutes, and your teeth with absorb the fluoride, which helps to strengthen and remineralise the enamel and protect your teeth from decay.

Why would I need fluoride application?

The treatment is a preventative measure, which means that, although you may not necessarily need it, it can prevent decay and protect your teeth for the future. If you are at risk for cavities, your dentist may recommend fluoride treatment as a way of restoring minerals to tooth enamel.

Fluoride application can also prevent the build-up of harmful bacteria in the mouth, a condition which can lead to inflammation.

Ask your dentist if you are interested in fluoride application and want to know more about the benefits it can have for the continued oral health of you or your children.

What are the benefits of fluoride application?

  • Protects teeth from decay and cavities by reducing the amount of acid produced by bacteria in the mouth
  • Restores minerals to tooth surfaces where bacteria may have eroded enamel.
  • As a preventative measure, this can save money in the long-term.
