Fluoride is a naturally-occurring mineral that has been proven to strengthen tooth enamel, making it more resistant to decay. Fluoride treatments involve the application of a concentrated fluoride gel, foam, or varnish directly to your child’s teeth. This helps:
- Prevent Cavities: Fluoride treatments can significantly reduce the risk of cavities by strengthening the tooth enamel and protecting it from acidic attacks caused by plaque and bacteria.
- Reverse Early Signs of Tooth Decay: Fluoride can help remineralize the enamel, reversing the early signs of tooth decay and preventing the need for more extensive dental treatments in the future.
- Protect Developing Teeth: As your child’s permanent teeth begin to emerge, fluoride treatments can help ensure that they develop strong, healthy enamel.
