Fluoride Treatments at Mills Dental Care

Healthier, Stronger Teeth in Port Moresby

Fluoride makes your teeth stronger.

Fluoride makes your teeth stronger!

Many years ago, scientists started to notice that children who were born and raised in areas with natural fluoride in drinking water had fewer cavities than children in other areas. Fluoride absorbed by your body when teeth were forming (during mother’s pregnancy to early childhood) integrates into the structure of enamel and makes it stronger. In fact, we recommend fluoride treatments as a regular part of each checkup at our Port Moresby dentist clinic.

Sources of Fluoride

After teeth eruption, fluoride found in your toothpaste, mouthwash or in what your dentist places on your teeth still has a positive effect on your teeth. It strengthens the enamel and reduces the chance of tooth decay.

If you have children and live in an area that has no fluoride in its drinking water, you should consult your dentist and physician about fluoride tablets that are available for children.

If you have any questions about fluoride treatments for your smile, contact us today.
