Why Will a Dentist Apply Fluoride?
A dentist will often apply fluoride to your teeth at the end of a visit. Why is this chemical essential to the health of your teeth and how does the process itself take place?
– Fluoride helps to strengthen the enamel (the outer layer) of your teeth.
– As a result, you are less likely to develop cavities over time.
– A quick-drying formula is utilised; hardening in less than one minute.
“The frequency of your dental cleanings should be determined by your dentist based on your unique oral health.”
