Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that has been proven to prevent and even reverse tooth decay. Fluoride does this by strengthening your enamel, which is the hard shiny outer layer of your teeth that protects the softer and more vulnerable dentin beneath. Fluoride also helps protect smiles by re-mineralizing tiny micro-cavities before they have the chance to grow into larger cavities.
Thanks to all the beneficial properties of fluoride, we recommend it as a preventive treatment for children. Fluoride treatments can be completed easily during routine dental cleanings and typically take the form of a rinse or a varnish that is applied directly to teeth. Adults who have a high risk of tooth decay can also benefit from fluoride treatments.
