hese days our children are introduced to fast food early in their childhood. These fast food have one thing in common they stick on tooth surface for longer duration of time increasing chances of development of cavities. Regular mouth rinsing, brushing twice daily and immediately after taking colas and chocolates may reduce this risk.
For parents who intend to go an extra mile to take care of their kid’s oral health fluoride application is a good option.
Synthetic fluoride is available in form of gels and special pastes which are applied to the teeth with help of trays for 2-3 minutes. Fluoride sticks to tooth surface for several hours and helps to re-mineralize enamel.
However this treatment is not intended to replace mouth rinsing and regular brushing which should be introduced in their habits early.
