Enamel is the thin outer covering of the tooth.
At the Dental Oral Center polyclinic, tooth fluoridation is performed by using high-concentration preparations. Fluoride strengthens the surface of the enamel and makes it more resistant to the acid originating from bacteria in the oral cavity. The whole treatment lasts between 15 and 20 minutes.
Fluoride is a mineral that can be found in many foods and drinking water. It makes teeth stronger and more resistant to dental caries, reduces the amount of acid secreted by oral bacteria and thus protects teeth from developing a caries. Adding fluoride to drinking water has been proven to reduce caries by 40 to 60%.
