Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride treatment stands as a cornerstone in preventive pediatric dentistry, playing a pivotal role in strengthening children’s teeth against decay. This vital treatment is a fundamental part of our dental care services, focusing on enhancing your child’s oral health.

Understanding Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is a natural mineral renowned for its ability to strengthen tooth enamel, the outer protective layer of teeth. It repairs minor tooth decay and combats bacteria harmful to teeth. Fluoride treatments at our clinic involve applying a high concentration of fluoride in the form of gel, foam or varnish directly to the teeth.

The Fluoride Varnish Application Process

The fluoride application is a straightforward and comfortable process:

  1. Teeth are cleaned to remove any debris and plaque.
  2. A concentrated fluoride preparation is applied to the teeth, usually taking just a few minutes.
  3. Patients are able to eat and drink immediately after application but are advised to refrain from brushing for at least four hours.

Benefits of Fluoride Treatment

  • Strengthens tooth enamel and reduces the risk of cavities.
  • Repairs early signs of tooth decay.
  • Quick and pain-free application.
  • Effective for children of all ages.
  • Helps in maintaining long-term oral health.
