Fluoride is an essential element to prevent caries and bacterial accumulation on the tooth surface. Fluoride fights against bacteria and keeps the tooth structure strong and healthy. Aster clinic offers safe and comfortable fluoride treatment at a low cost. Fluoride treatment is done in the form of varnish, foam, gel or cream. It can be applied by brush, tray, swab or mouthwash. Fluoride toothpaste, the size of a pea, is also recommended for children in the age group of 3 to 9 years. Fluoride treatment is recommended by every dentist to prevent caries.
What is the procedure of In-office Fluoride Varnish treatment?
Fluoride comes in the form of a gel, rinse, foam, or varnish. The treatment is the application of the fluoride varnish, which may be applied with a swab, brush, tray, or mouthwash. Fluoride varnish is painted on the top and sides of each tooth with a small brush. It is sticky but hardens once it comes in contact with saliva. Once the fluoride is applied, we recommend restricting eating for at least 30 minutes to allow the fluoride to be absorbed.
Aster clinic has highly qualified dentists to ensure the best application of fluoride varnish, both for children and adults. We provide seamless care and guidance during the procedure. You can call us now and book your appointment. To know more about fluoride treatments, talk to our dentists.
When provided at least twice a year to children under the age of 18, 2.26 percent fluoride content varnish treatment is recognized as beneficial for caries prevention. Sodium fluoride varnishes are also recommended for the prevention of root caries in adults.
Fluoride varnishes are an effective and safe approach to distributing and keeping fluoride on tooth structure. Fluoride treatments are a painless, safe, and minimally invasive way to strengthen teeth and prevent tooth decay.
Fluoride takes 30 minutes to bond to the teeth. As a result, patients should wait 30 minutes after receiving a fluoride treatment before eating or drinking.
Too much fluoride, especially when administered to children, can lead to a condition known as fluorosis. Studies have showed that those with fluorosis have a higher chance of developing sensitive teeth.
