What is Fluoride Treatment?

Fluoride is a mineral with similar benefits to those of calcium.

It is an integral part of the tooth’s enamel and protects teeth from decay. 

Fluoride treatment is the method of replenishing the fluoride concentration of your teeth to protect them from tooth decay.

The body loses fluoride every day and needs to increase intake to ensure that there is an appropriate balance.

Benefits of Fluoride for Children

  • Aids in the development of the teeth by strengthening the enamel
  • Plays an important part in the development of permanent teeth by making them impenetrable by acids, thus preventing their demineralization
  • It acts as a shield for the teeth by protecting it from acid attacks caused by acidic and sugary foods
  • Reverses early signs of tooth decay

Benefits of Fluoride for Adults

  • Prevents tooth decay
  • Prevents the demineralization of the teeth by disrupting the acid production

When do you need fluoride treatment?

Fluoride treatments are great for susceptible adults who wish to fight tooth decay and maintain strong and healthy teeth.

There are some patients who are at higher risk of tooth decay due to certain conditions which cause excessive fluoride loss and sensitivity.

These conditions are: 
  • Dry Mouth
  • Gum Recession 
  • Frequent Cavities
  • Consumption of Sweets
