Fluoride treatments in Bloomfield, NJ

When it comes to keeping your child’s teeth healthy, fluoride treatments are one of the most important things you can do. At True Pediatric Dental Care in Bloomfield NJ, we offer fluoride treatments that help protect your child’s teeth from cavities and decay. Here is a guide on fluoride treatments and why they are so important for your child’s dental health.

What Is Fluoride?

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in many foods and water sources. It helps strengthen tooth enamel by making it more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. This helps prevent cavities, tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems associated with poor oral hygiene habits or inadequate nutrition. Fluoride also helps remineralize weakened enamel and this can reverse early signs of tooth decay before the issue becomes serious; requiring more extensive treatment such as fillings or crowns.

Why Do Children Need Fluoride Treatments?

Children need extra protection against cavities because their teeth are still developing until around age 12- 13 when all their adult teeth have come through completely( with the exception of wisdom teeth). During this time period children may not be able to brush as thoroughly as an adult due to lack of dexterity or motivation so having additional protection against cavity formation is essential for maintaining good dental health throughout childhood into adulthood! Additionally, some children may be at higher risk for developing cavities due to genetics or lifestyle factors such as frequent snacking on sugary snacks without brushing afterward which makes them even more susceptible than those who practice good oral hygiene habits regularly!

How Are Fluoride Treatments Administered?

At True Pediatric Dental Care we offer two types of professional fluoride treatments – topical applications (applied directly onto the surface) and systemic applications (taken orally). Topical applications involve applying a special type of varnish containing high concentrations of fluoride directly onto clean dry surfaces using small brushes; this method works best when applied every 6 months during regular checkups but can also be done between visits if needed depending on individual patient needs/risk factors! Systemic applications involve taking tablets/ drops containing low concentrations of fluorides orally.  These should only be taken under direct supervision from our dentists here at True Pediatric Dental Care since overuse of oral fluorides could potentially have adverse effects like discoloration and mottling on permanent adult front teeth.  If fluoride is taken over long periods of time, it must be done with proper monitoring under the supervision of a dental professional!

Conclusion

Fluoride treatments play an essential role in protecting your child’s developing smile by providing extra defense against cavity formation caused by poor brushing habits or inadequate nutrition intake- something that no amount of home care alone will ever replace! If you’re looking for comprehensive pediatric dental care services including professional-grade preventive measures like topical and systemic application fluorides then look no further than us here at True Pediatric Dentistry.   Our experienced team of pediatric dentists in Bloomfield NJ will make sure that all aspects related to keeping those pearly whites healthy remain a top priority each step along the way!
