Fluoride Therapy in Dubai Silicon Oasis

Table of contents

Fluoride is a mineral that helps prevent cavities (caries) by making the tooth enamel more resistant to acid attacks from bacterial plaque and sugars present in the mouth. Inadequate fluoride content will eventually lead to tooth decay.

How We Do It

At Solis Dental Clinic, we provide topical fluoride applications to help strengthen tooth enamel, resist tooth decay, and promote re-mineralization of tooth areas affected by early decay. Your dentist may also prescribe fluoride supplements in liquid or tablet form.

More about Fluoride Therapy

Where is Fluoride available?

  • Naturally: Fluoride is present in foods and water and gets deposited on teeth when we consume them.
  • Artificially (Topical Fluoride): Fluoride can be artificially applied to the teeth in two ways:
  • In a lightly concentrated form using fluoridated toothpaste and mouth rinse as a home remedy
  • In a concentrated form as fluoride treatments where your dentist applies it as a varnish, foam, or gel. Varnishes are directly painted on the teeth; foams are placed in trays that are inserted into the mouth for the teeth to “soak in” for 1-4 minutes; gels are applied either way.

When Is Fluoride Intake Most Critical?

Although both adults and children benefit from fluoride, it is especially important for infants and children below 16 years to be exposed to fluoride as this is when the primary and permanent teeth are formed.

Are there any risks?

Too much of a good thing can do more harm than good. Excessive ingestion of fluoride is one cause of dental fluorosis (a developmental defect of the enamel) during the period of enamel formation between birth and 6 years of age. Hence, it is important for you to consult with your dentist to ensure the adequacy of fluoride use, especially for children below age six.
