What is Fluoride Therapy?
Fluoride Therapy is a dental treatment to prevent tooth decay and strengthen your tooth enamel.
The benefits of fluoride therapy include:
- Strengthening Your Tooth Enamel: Fluoride remineralises the outer layer of the teeth (enamel), making it more resistant to acid and decay-causing bacteria.
- Reducing Tooth Sensitivity: Fluoride can help decrease tooth sensitivity, making it less painful to consume hot, cold, or sweet foods and drinks.
- Preventing Tooth Decay: Regular use of fluoride can significantly reduce the risk of developing cavities and dental caries.
4. Inhibiting Bacterial Growth: Fluoride can prevent the growth of harmful bacteria in the mouth, which can decrease the chances of dental infections.
Why Is It Important To Get My Teeth Cleaned Professionally?
Professional teeth cleaning, also known as dental prophylaxis or scaling and polishing, is important for maintaining good oral health. Even with regular brushing and flossing, plaque and tartar can accumulate in hard-to-reach areas, leading to tooth decay and gum disease. Cleaning reduces the risk of oral health problems. Additionally, our doctors provide personalised oral hygiene instructions and tips to help you maintain a healthy smile between visits.
