Fluoridation of teeth
Fluoridation is the name for the application of fluoride. Fluoride is associated with tooth enamel, it hardens and it becomes more resistant to caries.
- Strengthens tooth enamel
- It does not burden teeth
- Painless and gentle treatment
The most common type is local fluoridation in which the substances are applied locally with fluorine on teeth. The objective is to deliver a local fluoridation into the surface layers of enamel large amount of fluoride, to increase tooth resistance to acids, which are generated by plaque bacteria. Another positive effect of fluoride is slowing metabolism and proliferation of these bacteria. The concentration of fluoride in enamel decreases over time, so you need to supply them regularly.
Professional fluoridation is recommended especially at higher propensity to caries, congenital low resistance glass teeth with multiple treatment in starting stage of caries in the associated diseases affecting the enamel (e.g. gastroesophageal reflux disease, anorexia nervosa, etc.)., Long teeth weakened or neglect with poor hygiene.
Fluoride does not prevent without regular conscientiously performed oral hygiene and vice versa.
