Fluoride Dental Treatment

Fluoride is of interest because of its effects on dental enamel and bone. It comes from the element fluorine, the 17th most abundant element in earth's crust.The importance of fluoride in dentistry stems from the knowledge that fluoride reduces the incidence of dental decay especially in newly erupted teeth in children. What is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a naturally occurring chemical that is effective in preventing tooth decay. In recent years, fluoride has been responsible for a dramatic decrease in dental caries, despite the increase in the consumption of sugar.

How can fluoride help my child's teeth?

Fluoride strengthens the tooth enamel , making it more resistant to decay.
Fluoride helps to decrease the formation of acids caused by the interaction of plaque and sugar in the mouth.
It can help repair the early stages of decay when it has affected the enamel only. This is done by a process called remineralisation.

Can fluoride be put into the local or national water supply?

It can. This is the cheapest and most effective way of bringing fluoride to the greatest number of people. The ideal concentration in drinking water is one part of fluoride to a million parts of water.

How can a fluoride treatment be done?

There are fluoride varnishes and gels that can be applied directly onto the teeth by your dentist.
The varnishes are particularly effective and easy to apply. They dry quickly and eating can start soon afterwards.
