Causes of Tooth Decay

Tooth decay is caused by an acid-producing bacterium that forms on the teeth and gums in a film that is called 'plaque'.

Over time, and without a proper oral care regimen, teeth become more susceptible and vulnerable to decay, cavities and disease.

Benefits of Fluoride

Fluoride is a mineral that is very important to the health of your teeth. Fluoride not only helps to prevent cavities, but it can also repair tooth decay when it is in the very early stages of the disease.

Fluoride can be obtained in two ways, it can be ingested systematically in small doses (such as through fluoridated drinking water) or it can be applied directly to the teeth.

The best results occur when fluoride is obtained in both of these ways.

At Kaplan Dental Clinic, we offer fluoride treatment where we apply fluoride directly to your teeth to help prevent tooth decay.

Fluoride Treatment

Professional fluoride treatment performed by your dentist will generally take no more than a few minutes.

The fluoride used in dental offices is of a strong concentration in the form of a gel, foam or varnish. It will generally be applied by your dentist with a cotton swab, brush or with a rinse.

The necessity of fluoride treatment will depend on your overall oral health and the genetics of your teeth, with some individuals being more susceptible to tooth decay.
