At the Dental Oral Center clinic we perform tooth fluoridation by applying products of high concentration. Fluor strengthens the surface of tooth enamel, the top layer of the tooth, thus making it more resistant to the effects acids from bacteria in the oral cavity. The entire treatment lasts for about 15 to 20 minutes.
Fluor is a mineral that’s found in many of our groceries as well as our drinking water. It makes your teeth stronger and more resistant to tooth decay, it decreases the amount of acid secreted by oral bacteria in which way it protects your teeth from tooth cavities. Adding fluoride to your drinking water is proven to decrease
Systemic fluoridation can be performed by systematic use of tablets, drinking water or kitchen salt. It is the most efficient when done during the time of tooth development because fluoride embeds itself in hard dental tissue in this period and makes it more resistant to tooth decay.
Local application of fluoride can strengthen the surface of the enamel and prevent the creation of a tooth cavity.
Most kinds of toothpaste today contain fluoride so they’re very efficient in preventing tooth decay. All children below 3 years of age should use the kinds of toothpaste with fluoride concentration up to 1000 ppm, and children more than 3 years old over 1500 ppm.
