Fluorine –
sometimes more, sometimes less useful

After professional teeth cleaning, fluoridation is helpful for some teeth. Children's teeth often need more additional fluorine, but some adults can benefit from fluoride gel too. We first assess the substance of the teeth and then decide if we recommend fluorine.

The use of fluorine preparations is only done after consultation and with the patient's consent.

Fluorine for adults

Normally, adult teeth get enough fluorine from the toothpaste. Despite this, there are certain types of tooth enamel which are helped by a higher fluorine dose. We observe your susceptibility to caries and your tooth enamel closely and recommend additional fluorine if it is beneficial.
