Fluoride therapy

Gatton Dental offers several fluoride treatments. The treatment that will be recommended to you will be based on your risk of tooth decay.

Fluoride benefits include:

1. Reduces the risk of tooth decay & tooth loss significantly 

2. Reduces tooth sensitivity & strengthens tooth enamel (see here)

3. Reduces the risk of further dental treatment

 What you should know

  • Colgate has done significant studies proving the higher the fluoride concentration the lower the risk of tooth decay.
  • Fluoride treatments are an additional preventative measure but not a substitute for good brushing habits and a good diet with minimal snacking between meals.
