Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps to strengthen our teeth. It is recommended that you use fluoride-based toothpaste and drink tap water regularly. Tap water in Australia contains this essential mineral. Every so often your dentist may recommend a professional fluoride treatment if they think your teeth require it.
We use professional-grade fluoride which is highly concentrated. It is applied with either a swab, mouthwash, brush or tray. It takes just a few minutes. You will need to avoid eating for 30 minutes after the treatment to allow the fluoride to absorb.
