Decrease Cavities & Fillings

Fluoride is a natural mineral that occurs naturally in many foods and water. It is a mineral that helps to rebuild tooth enamel and reverse the early signs of tooth decay by making it resistant to acid attacks from plaque and bacteria build-up. It is especially important for young children as this provides them with a positive foundation for strong teeth and overall dental health.

Our bodies take in fluoride in two ways, Systematically and topically. Topical fluoride works to strengthen already developed teeth and enamel, making them more resistant to decay. This is done through caring for our teeth with toothpaste, mouth rinses and dental treatments.

Systematic fluoride strengthens both developing and already developed teeth. We gain this through the food we eat and the water we drink. It can also be taken in the form of supplement drops and gels that are prescribed by a dentist or physician.

Fluoride Treatments By Noosa Experts

Invest In Your Smile

In the hands of seasoned professionals, fluoride treatments are an excellent way to keep your mouth and health healthier for longer. It has been found to lead to a 30% decreased risk of developing cavities, needing fillings, or having teeth removed. It is a quick and simple process that typically only takes a few minutes to apply!

At request, a fluoride treatment can be placed on your teeth after they have been cleaned. Our treatment involves a foam swished in the mouth for 30 seconds.

These treatments have much more fluoride than your traditional toothpaste or drinking water, making them a highly effective dental treatment. After the treatment is applied, it is required that you do not eat or drink for 30 minutes after the application allowing the teeth to absorb the fluoride. Here the enamel of your teeth is repaired and the lost calcium and phosphorus is replenished.

 

The Benefits of Fluoride Treatments

It's never too late to start practising a healthy oral hygiene routine. While it is an important treatment for young children, fluoride treatments are just as important for adults with benefits everyone can appreciate.

Over time different liquids and food will begin to break down the enamel on your teeth. Once this enamel is broken through, it can begin to break down the inner sections of your teeth, leading to decay and, eventually, painful infections.

Protecting your enamel

Over time your enamel will begin to wear down and form small cracks, leaving it vulnerable to damage and is the primary reason that cavities appear. Fluoride treatments protect against these acids from corroding through your enamel and exposing the inner sections of your tooth.

Putting lost minerals back into your teeth

Acid does much more than simply breaking down the enamel in your teeth. They destroy the minerals that keep your teeth strong and healthy. By brushing your teeth with and scheduling regular fluoride treatments, you work to rebuild the inner sections of your teeth and ensure they remain healthy.

Works to prevent cavities and tooth decay

While it may not seem like a huge problem to start with, if left untreated, cavities can lead to extensive decay, discomfort and infection. By protecting and strengthening the teeth with fluoride treatments, you can help prevent this from happening.

Save On Expensive Dental Treatments

Tooth decay can be expensive to treat, often requiring root canals, fillings or even implants in serious cases. By getting a fluoride treatment, you can help prevent these more serious problems, saving you time, money and stress!
