What is Fluoride Treatment
This mineral is diminished through acid wear, and replenished via the foods and liquids we consume. If not enough fluoride is obtained, our teeth are vulnerable to decay. Fluoride is present in the foods and beverages we consume, but this can also be supplemented by fluoride treatments in the dental chair.
Fluoride treatments come in the form of gels, foams and varnishes, and dramatically enrich your teeth with this precious mineral. Fluoride supplements in the form of tablets or liquids can also be prescribed.
The benefits of Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride treatment especially helps children as this mineral aides tooth development. People with certain medical conditions who are more susceptible to tooth decay can also highly benefit from this treatment such as people with:
- Dry mouth conditions
- Gum disease
- A history of tooth decay
- Orthodontic work
- People who drink bottled or filtered water
