Fluoride treatment: Benefits, procedure, and more

Imagine a magical mineral, that recovers the damaged teeth and makes them stronger. It can heal your rotting teeth and protect them from decay. Well, fluoride is the one. Fluoride treatment is one of the most effective preventive dental services that protect your teeth from decay and cavities.

Fluoride protects the enamel of your teeth by making it resistant to acids and other toxins. Fluoride is also proven to heal already-started tooth decay. It increases the healing of minerals in your teeth and strengthens them.

How does fluoride work?

Your teeth lose minerals every day because of the toxins released from decaying teeth and built-up plaque. Nature tries to recover this mineral loss through fluoride in water and food, which is not enough.

This gap between the demineralization and remineralization of your teeth makes your teeth weak. Your teeth lose minerals every day but they are never fully recovered. Which causes the risk of various dental diseases and physical damage to your teeth.

Because the normal component of your teeth enamel matches with the compound of fluoride, fluoride is highly effective in recovering your mineral loss. This is the reason why fluorine is added to water in many places, fluoride toothpaste is used and fluoride tablets to children to maintain dental health.

The reason fluoride is used in preventive dentistry is quite clear. It increases the addition of minerals in your teeth and it can heal tooth decay and strengthen the enamel in your teeth.

What are the benefits of fluoride treatment?
