Fluoride Treatment: Fluoride treatment reduces the number of cavities an individual will develop in their life. Fluoride treatment can reduce the number of cavities by half. This is because the enamel of the tooth becomes more resistant to the acid attacks of plaque bacteria.
Topical fluoride treatment is carried out by using a tray where a fluoride gel or foam is placed. The tray is placed in the mouth normally for 4 minutes. The time can vary depending on the type of fluoride used. In our dental surgery fluoride treatment is carried out after scaling and polishing.
