Fluoride is an essential mineral found in the teeth that helps to provide the required protection from microbes. It is known to make the teeth strong and keep them from developing cavities. The fluoride required by the body is obtained through the use of drinking water and toothpaste to brush the teeth. But, when the body's adequate amount of fluoride isn't received, the teeth tend to become weak and susceptible to cavities and excessive wear. In such cases, a fluoride treatment would be the best way to replenish the fluoride amount in the teeth and make them strong.
Importance of fluoride treatment
Fluoride treatment is especially recommended for children as they tend to eat a lot of sugary foods. This makes their teeth more susceptible to cavities as the sugar content promotes the growth of microbes in the mouth. Hence, artificially increasing the fluoride content in the teeth will make them stronger and provide better immunity from cavities. It is a preventive measure that ensures better oral health.
