IMPORTANCE OF FLUORIDE AND VARNISHES
Fluoride and varnishes are the most effective, newest way of supplying sodium fluoride to all erupted teeth. Varnishes are the topical types of fluoride that are implemented to the teeth surface. Fluoride mixed to water and consumed is systemic fluoride that is crucial when your teeth are growing, but topical fluoride is advantageous for any tooth for a person’s lifetime. This implies that fluoride and varnishes are beneficial not just for kids but also for adults. After dental cleanings, our dentist will apply fluoride varnish. At Advance Dental Clinic, both kids and adults can get fluoride and varnishes at an affordable cost seamlessly.
HOW DO FLUORIDE AND VARNISHES PREVENT CAVITIES?
Here’s how fluoride and varnishes prevent cavities:
- Fluoride makes the growth of tooth decay slow by preventing demineralization.
- It increases the resistance of the enamel to acid from bacteria discovered in plaque and helps in re-mineralization of your teeth using fluoride ions making the tooth surface more resistant and stronger to decay.
- It can prevent bacterial metabolism for forming less acid.
- Varnish, on the other hand, sticks to the teeth and discharges over the next few hours. No foam or more trays! Since it sticks to the teeth, it is secure to use on patients of all ages.
