Fluoride is an important mineral that keeps the teeth strong and healthy. It can be found especially in water and in many products bought by every one of us. Before we enter into details, we remind that you can receive dental implants in Dubai, according to your needs, and also personalized treatments. Our modern dental clinics in Dubai are equipped with top class technology in dentistry, where patients can receive innovative dental treatments.
Essential details about fluoridation
Acids found in foods can demineralize the tooth enamel, leading to plaque, tartar and gum diseases. Demineralization without remineralization from time to time will definitely lead to tooth decay. In this stage, minerals like calcium, phosphor, and fluoride enter in the discussion because these are important elements which can restore the tooth enamel, making it stronger and resistant. Fluoride is an essential mineral in teeth development on children aged 6 when the permanent teeth settle.
Where do we find fluoride?
The tap and bottled water are the main sources of fluoride, and as it is known, all doctors recommend drinking at least two liters per day, for a good general health, including the teeth. Toothpaste and mouthwashes contain a suitable amount of fluoride and this is how the teeth receive the needed level of mineral. Our dentist in Dubai can also prepare special fluoridation treatments in higher concentrations, which are recommended at least twice per year if all the dental problems are solved.
What do you need to know about the fluoridation treatment in Dubai?
It is good to know that you can receive fluoridation treatments in Dubai, which imply the application of fluoride paste, foam or gel on the teeth for about 5 minutes. A mouthguard is used with these treatments. If the dentist in Dubai considers you should receive more fluoride for your teeth, he can prescribe specific medication which includes tablets or fluoride liquids.
Fluoride treatments for special patients in Dubai
People who take antihistamines, blood pressure and antianxiety drugs can develop tooth decay more rapidly than usual individuals. Such patients are advised to benefit from the fluoridation treatments available in our dental clinics in Dubai. It is good to know that fluoride is not toxic, and the dentist will always offer the proper amount of this treatment. As a recommendation, it is necessary to adopt a proper diet, with special foods that contain the necessary amount of fluoride for a correct development of the teeth in children. Potatoes, cereals, seedless raisins, seafood, grapes, and fish are the main sources of fluoride, which can be excellent options to consider for your child’s diet.
