What is Fluoride?

Fluoride is an element that prevents the decay of the teeth and strengthens the structure. 

 

Why Fluoride is Important for teeth?

Since the teeth enamel is not fully mature after eruption, the new teeth are generally less resistant to decay.  When flouride is applied to the enamel, it makes the enamel mature and ensures its healthy development and makes it resistant to decay and the damages caused by the acids produced by the bacterias in the formed carries. 

 

What is Fluoride Application?

Systemic fluoride application: It is a type of application where people use fluoride toothpaste, consume fluoridated water, milk and table salt for protection against dental caries.

Topical fluoride application: Is the application of gel, foam or varnish on the surfaces of the tooth and is usually done by a physician in a clinical environment. 

 

What is Fluoride Gel and How is it Applied?

Fluoride gel is applied to the tooth enamel, making the tooth enamel more resistant and hard. The most commonly used form is APF (Acidified Phosphate Fluoride and Sodium Fluoride). These gels comes in different flavors such as strawberry, orange and mint, and are applied in a simple, comfortable and painless way. It is applied by trays (spoon) and kept in the mouth for 4 minutes. Do not rinse your mouth, eat or drink anything approximately 30 minutes after the application. Fluoride gel can be applied 3-4 times a year according to caries activity in children 4 years and older and who have gained the ability to spit.

 

What is Fluoride Varnish and How is it Applied?

Fluoride varnish is applied to the surfaces of the tooth using special brush. They can be easily applied to children with gag reflex. Since it hardens shortly after it comes in contact with saliva, there is no risk of swallowing or fluoride poisoning. It can be applied 3-4 times a year according to the activity of caries.
