How is a fluoride treatment beneficial?
How does it work?
Fluoride treatments for children enable the teeth to absorb phosphate and calcium easily, strengthening the enamel, making it less susceptible to bacteria and as a result – to caries. In the cases of small caries, fluoride can even reverse the process and spare your little ones the inconvenience of having a filling.
Application and regularity
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can be applied every 3 to 6 months, based on the dentist’s recommendation. The application should be done in-clinic and by a professional – misuse of fluoride may cause an allergic reaction and can even be toxic if applied in an incorrect amount.
