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.
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.
Fluoride application is a relatively inexpensive preventative treatment, with prices starting at £20 in most cases.
