Fluoride Treatment From Your Dentists in Brantford
How does fluoride benefit oral health?
By working in partnership with the minerals in your teeth to ward off cavity-causing acids, fluoride literally strengths tooth enamel and, in some cases, can even reverse the early stages of tooth decay through the process of re-mineralization.
There are two ways fluoride impacts and benefits teeth:
Topically: Applied via mouthwash, toothpaste, and with professional, in-office treatments, topical fluoride applications re-mineralize and strengthen the outer surfaces of teeth. Studies confirm that brushing with fluoridated toothpaste twice each day helps prevent decay both in the short- and long-term.
Systemically: When ingested in fluoridated food, water, or dentist- or pediatrician-prescribed supplements, fluoride helps the teeth of babies and children grow in strong, health, and decay-resistant.
Can I benefit from a fluoride treatment?
In most cases, yes. Having an in-office treatment performed during your bi-annual checkup and cleaning appointments not only helps improve the quality of your tooth enamel, it also helps reduce the acid production of plaque bacteria. It also works to help prevent the development of cavities and decay in your teeth.
How is it applied?
Your dentist will apply a highly concentrated foam, gel, varnish, or rinse to your teeth. The great news is that it takes just a few minutes for tooth enamel to absorb the application!
