• Fluoride

    Fluoride has long played a major role in improving dental health. As an additive to drinking water and a toothpaste ingredient, it has helped protect generations of users against caries.

    In addition, topical application of fluoride by your dentist directly to the surface of the teeth helps to strengthen the surface of the teeth and make it more resistant to acid.

    Topical fluoride usually comes in the form of foam or gel in a mouth tray which is placed over the teeth and held in place for a few minutes by biting down.

    Modern fluoride treatments come in many tantalizing flavors such as such as cherry cheesecake, lemon lime, strawberry kiwi, chocolate vanilla which help make the procedure fun for children.

    You need to be careful not to swallow any as it can be toxic in large doses.
    Plus you should avoiding consuming anything for an hour or so after treatment.
