Children’s Dentistry > Fluoride

Fluoride is a natural element that is of crucial importance for children’s developing teeth, as well as for maintaining the health of adult teeth.  When absorbed into your bones and tooth enamel, fluoride helps make them stronger and more resistant to fractures and decay.

At The Dental Gallery we can provide fluoride treatment as a varnish, which when applied to your teeth supply a much higher level of fluoride than that found in toothpaste or mouthwash.  Fluoride treatment then causes remineralisation which can help repair the damage caused by dental decay, helping your teeth to stay strong, white and healthy. Drinking regular tap water will also supply the sufficient amount of fluoride required for healthy teeth. We must point out, however, that bottled filtered water does not contain enough amount of fluoride to protect and strengthen teeth.
