Fluoridation can be helpful on some teeth, particularly after a professional dental clean. Children’s teeth more often need additional fluoride, but some adults can also benefit from fluoride gels. We first assess the tooth structure before deciding whether to recommend fluoride. Fluoride preparations are only used after the patient has been consulted and has consented.
FLUORIDE – SOMETIMES BUT NOT ALWAYS NECESSARY
FLUORIDE FOR ADULTS
Adult teeth usually get enough fluoride from their toothpaste. Nevertheless, there are certain types of tooth enamel that benefit from a higher dose of fluoride. We closely monitor your enamel and susceptibility to tooth decay and will recommend additional fluoride should we deem it beneficial.
