Fluoride varnish

Why fuss about Fluoride?

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in water sources and in seawater. Research has shown that fluoride not only reduces cavities in children and adults, but it also helps repair the early stages of tooth decay, even before the decay is visible.

How does fluoride work?

When fluoride reaches your teeth, it is absorbed into the enamel.It helps to repair the enamel by replenishing the lost minerals keep your teeth hard. It forms a harder crystalline structure that is less prone to dissolution. This process is called remineralisation. 

Applying fluoride varnish is a quick, simple and effective procedure. It is available in different flavours and our children love the taste!
