Fluoride treatments by our Winnipeg dentists are used for children and adults alike to help prevent tooth decay and strengthen tooth enamel.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps teeth to resist decay. Fluoride treatments can help prevent or sometimes reverse tooth decay by rebuilding minerals and strengthening the tooth enamel.
A dentist may prescribe fluoride treatment for adults who are at a higher risk of getting cavities, and children who need help to grow strong teeth.
Dental fluorosis refers to white spots on teeth that can occur if you ingest too much fluoride in your early years, however, it is not a concern for most people and very uncommon.
If you have a child under age three, you can consult your dentist to find out if they have a high risk of tooth decay. If they do, fluoride treatment may be a good option.
