Fluorine is a natural mineral. It can be applied every 3 or 6 months depending on the caries risk status of the person to reduce dental caries. It has been proven in many studies in the literature that fluorine applied in dentistry does not have any harmful effect on the person, on the contrary, it prevents the formation of caries in the teeth and the progression of existing caries.
There are many methods of fluoride application (toothpaste, mouthwash, gel, varnish). When choosing which fluoride to apply, the child’s age and caries risk status are taken into consideration.
It is an easy and short-term procedure.
