Preventive Dentistry is a series of preventive measures done to avoid future dental issues. The first step to prevent a dental problem is to prevent plaque build-up that can cause decay and cavities and may lead to tooth loss. Here at Langston Amador Dental Group, we provide fluoride application treatment to protect the patient’s teeth from any bacteria. We proudly serve the communities of Pompano Beach, Lighthouse Point, Kendall Green, Pompano Beach Highlands and surrounding areas.
Bacteria may develop from the food because it breaks down into sugar that produces acid which sticks in the teeth and can develop plaques. Plaques may harden and develop into tartar and cause cavities. With the help of fluoride applications, it strengthens the teeth’s enamel to fight off bacteria that cause caries. Fluoride also repairs early stages of decay(microscopic phase).
Ways to Obtain Fluoride
There are two ways to obtain fluoride;
Topical fluoride applications are usually arranged in the office which involves stronger and concentrated fluoride. This type of treatment is painless and can be completed in just one visit to the dentist. The procedure starts by cleaning the teeth to remove food particles and plaque. After cleaning, the fluoride in the form of gel or varnish will be applied to the surface of the tooth.
After the treatment, the patient is advised to avoid eating, drinking and mouth rinsing for half an hour for the absorption of fluoride.
Systemic fluoride is those which can be swallowed. It includes:
- Ingestion of fluoridated dietary supplements
- Fluoridated water consumption
