As much as possible people want to get the sufficient protection that can help in maintaining good overall health. That also applies to dental health, getting the adequate amount of protection is vital in the maintenance of the whole mouth. Acquiring teeth protection naturally is highly beneficial, but there are some factors which make it easy to lose the naturally occurring mineral. Fluoride is one good example of a substance that the teeth need to stay protected, but acids from food debris can cause the loss of fluoride, which is why we at Reach Dental offers three types of Fluoride applications that can provide the sufficient amount of fluoride to keep the teeth healthy and strong.
What is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a mineral that everyone has easy access to especially to those who have Fluoridated waters in their community in the US. It can also be taken from foods and other beverages that people eat daily as well as with oral products such as toothpaste or mouthwash. Though it is easy to take in Fluoride, demineralization, a process that commonly occurs in the mouth where acids from the food particles attack the teeth enamel, causes the mineral that protects the teeth to disappear. Once this happens, remineralization is recommended to reverse it and prevent any further damage to the teeth by shielding it from acid attacks.
Types of Fluoride Applications
Topical Fluoride can be performed by the patient in the comfort of their own home. The solution is directly applied to the tooth, but this type of application has its risks. The patient may not be able to apply it correctly, and it might be left in the teeth for too long which can harm the enamel and cause the patient to be sick due to overexposure.
Professional Fluoride Treatment
The treatment is performed by a dentist who is qualified and backed up by training to properly perform the fluoride application procedure. The Fluoride is also applied topically, but with the dentist’s guidance, the fluoride solution is applied correctly and timed to avoid any problems for the patient.
The supplement form of Fluoride is ideal for patients who experience fluoride deficiency and can benefit them in the long run. But to make sure that the patient gets the right amount of dosage or type of supplement, it should be prescribed by the dentist for a more effective treatment.
Fluoride Application is for everyone of any age. It can help protect the teeth from dental caries and decays. Getting the right amount of Fluoride for the recommended daily dosage is essential to keep the teeth healthy and strong.
