Fluoride Applications

Fluoride has been long known for its benefits to people’s dental health. It is absorbed into the enamel and bone structures through a process known as remineralization, and adds strength and prevents tooth decay and fractures. It can also repair tooth decay in early stages. Fluoride can be found in the local drinking water supply of most areas, as well in certain foods we consume. Over the counter dental products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, etc. also contain fluoride.

Just Dental offers topical fluoride application treatments to prevent tooth decay and cavities. Our fluoride gels and varnishes are of professional strength. They are applied to the teeth and left on for about one minute. Patients are advised to avoid rinsing their mouth for about half an hour after the application to allow the fluoride to act on the enamel and get absorbed properly.

Who can have fluoride treatment?

  • Fluoride is ideal for patients with spots on their teeth because these spots are an indication of the deficiency with minerals and fluoride. To make the spots disappear, the right amount of fluoride should be distributed throughout the body.
  • It can be prescribed to children with developing teeth because fluoride is best absorbed while the teeth are still developing. This will help children reduce their risk of tooth decay and increase their protection against bacterial attack.
  • It is best for people who have a higher likelihood of developing dental caries. Fluoride is effective when it comes to increasing the strength and resistance of teeth against cavities.
  • It is highly suggested for patients under orthodontic treatments. Orthodontic appliances make the teeth more prone to decay and cavities because cleaning is more difficult. You can increase your teeth’s protection by having a fluoride treatment.
