In children, it is aimed to make dental mines resistant to organic acids which are formed by caries-causing microorganisms with local fluoride applications applied to both milk teeth and permanent teeth. This is accomplished by ion exchange between the enamel inorganic structure and the fluorine ion.
Local fluoride applications are applications that should be specifically addressed in the treatment of initial caries in individuals with low saliva flow in individuals who receive radiotherapy in the head and neck region, in orthodontic treatment, in high risk groups in terms of bruises seen on the flat surfaces of teeth as well as in general use. The goal in these applications is to prevent, stop and reverse the process of caries development. In addition to these problems, local fluoride applications can be used to alleviate dentin sensitivities.
How to apply fluoride
As it is known, milk teeth rot more easily. Considering the difficulty of children to gain effective and consistent toothbrushing habits until a certain age, fluorine application is an important and scientific method for combating rottenness.
Fluoride administration which should be done in children every 4 6 months is a very simple application applied to the physician control. After the tooth surface is cleaned from food and plaque residues, the gel or varnish form of the fluorid preparation is applied after the teeth have been dried and isolated from the saliva.
After the application, the patient does not eat or drink for 1-2 hours. Since it is an application to the surface of the teeth only, it is done safely in the clinical environment without side effects.
