Applications with Fluoride in the Prevention of Dental Caries

Today, preventive medicine has gained importance in dentistry and other medical sciences for dental caries.

When it comes to preventive medicine in dentistry, it comes to mind to prevent tooth decay. The substance we use to make the teeth resistant to caries is FLUORID.

Fluoride is an element that prevents tooth decay and strengthens the structure of teeth. Fluoride is found in toothpastes as well as in some nutrients. However, children often neglect to brush their teeth and they do not get enough fluoride for their teeth to gain resistance against cavities. In order to eliminate this situation, professional fluoride applications are made.

Professional fluoride application is a method that can only be applied by dentists. Fluoride application is especially applied to children whose teeth are prone to decay. In this way, a sufficient amount of fluoride is deposited on the teeth and the structure of the teeth is strengthened and made resistant to caries. Fluoride application can only be effective if it is done every 6 months. For this, bring your children to the dentist regularly every 6 months.
