Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth.
It also reverses early decay. Fluoride can be applied to the teeth as a gel, foam, rinse or varnish. These treatments contain a much higher level of fluoride than the amount found in toothpastes and over the counter mouth rinses.
This is the final part of dental cleaning. It is best not to eat, drink or rinse for 30 minutes after the fluoride has been applied.
