PREVENT CHILDREN’S CAVITIES WITH
Fluoride varnish is a simple solution that can slow and prevent tooth decay in children, and Happy Kids Dental is your destination for effective, monitored fluoride treatment in London. Fluoride plays a key role children’s oral health: too little, and they will run the risk of developing cavities; too much, and they might develop fluorosis – white chalky spots on the enamel. At Happy Kids Dental, our paediatric team will recommend the right amount of fluoride for your child, and schedule a regular fluoride varnish too. It’s is a very quick and simple procedure, which involves a gel being painted onto your child’s teeth using a soft brush. The gel has a fruity taste which temporarily colours the teeth for up to 3 days, before it gradually wears off.
Why use fluoride varnish?
Fluoride encourages remineralisation – strengthening weakened areas of your child’s teeth and protecting them from acid in foods and drinks. Fluoride occurs naturally in our tap water, as well as in many different foods – and it’s added to dental products such as toothpaste, mouthwash and supplements. Combining all sources of fluoride with a healthy diet and a great oral hygiene routine is the best way to reap the benefits.
