Fluoride Dental Treatment

Fluoride treatment is typically used as preventive dentistry to stop tooth decay. Fluoride is already present, and a typical person will consume some fluoride through their diet, drinking water, and dietary supplements. Tea, fish eaten with the bones, some infant formulas, and fish are all sources of dietary fluoride.

Benefits of Fluoride

Fluroide restores minerals to tooth surfaces where bacterial etching may have occurred. Fluoride works to either stop tooth decay in its tracks or to slow it down. A natural mineral called fluoride helps maintain healthy tooth enamel and fights bacteria that can damage teeth and gums.

Fluoride Dental Treatment

A fluoride treatment may be suggested by your dentist during a routine checkup in addition to professional teeth cleaning, particularly if you are at high risk for cavities.

Your dentist may use a highly concentrated gel, varnish, or rinse to apply fluoride during a professional fluoride treatment. Typically, mouthwash, a tray, a brush, or a swab are used to administer the treatment. They only had a brief window of time to apply. Additionally, you will be asked to wait 30 minutes before eating or drinking anything after the treatment. This is necessary so that your teeth can completely absorb the fluoride.

Cavities cannot entirely be prevented by fluoridation treatments. Therefore, you will still need to use toothpaste, floss frequently, and maintain a healthy diet.
