Fluoride Treatments: Types and Benefits

Do you brush twice a day and floss regularly? Still are your teeth at the risk from decay? Then getting some additional preventive measures like fluoride treatments could further protect your sensitive teeth from tooth decay.

If you are someone having the history of worst cavities or at risk of dental decay, you may need to increase your fluoride usage. The following useful information highlights how fluoride is an effective tool for the health of your teeth and gums.

Fluoride TreatmentWhat is fluoride treatment?

Fluoride treatment involves delivery of low concentration of fluoride ions topically or systematically to the teeth and is most effective against teeth decay which creates dental caries. Fluoride ion lowers the rate of enamel demineralization as well as increases the rate of re-mineralization of teeth cavities in early stages.

Benefits of fluoride treatment

Fluoride is most effective and beneficial for the care and maintenance of teeth. It repairs the decayed teeth in early stages before forming cavities.

  • Enamel repair and enamel fortification are the main benefits of fluoride treatment.
  • Plaque and acids destroy the tooth enamel and damage your teeth. Undergoing Fluoride treatment can benefit you in protecting your teeth from demineralization due to acid attacks.
  • If you are already facing problems with damaged teeth by acid attacks, fluoride gets accumulated in affected areas and starts strengthening the teeth enamel.
  • Fluoride ions disrupt the process of dental decay by changing the structure of developing teeth enamel hence it becomes more resistant to acid attacks.
  • Reduces the bacterial ability to release acids, which is the main cause of tooth decay.

Who are advised to get fluoride treatment?

Most people are susceptible to tooth decay for numerous reasons. Individuals who are at higher risk to dental caries and cavities can benefit from excellent fluoride treatments. This includes people who have:

  • Xerostomia
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Deep grooves and crevices in the teeth
  • History of tooth decay
  • Increased sugar intake

Fluoride does wonders in showing negative effects on dental plaque by inhibiting the ability of plaque to break down sugars.
