Florine Application

Fluorine Application

In the report of the World Health Organization, it is stated that by drawing attention to the safety of insufficient or excessive consumption of fluoride, the way to tooth decay is closed when it is insufficient, and the way to health devices such as endemic fluorosis when it is excessive. A comparative study conducted by the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) on children living in areas with and without fluoride drinking water reports that children who drink fluoridated water have 60 percent less tooth decay. However, the World Health Organization recommends that the fluorine hose in drinking water is lower than 1.5 mg/l. Drinking water containing fluoride slightly above this value for humans and animals causes dental fluorosis risk, and taking higher values for a long time causes fluorosis to be addressed.

It is a very safe application as fluoride polishes are not harmful. When it is applied around the teeth, the risk of swallowing and fluoride effect is almost non-existent, as it dries and hardens in a short time by contacting with a smile. It reduces dental caries by 30-40 percent. It can be used to use children.

Does Fluorine Prevent Teeth From Decay?

Fluoride is the safest and most cost-effective preventive application that has been developed to date and manages the business, both to protect teeth from caries and to prevent the progression of caries in the past.

The most important indicator of the child’s risk of decay;
To care about all the components of the mouth and teeth,
Oral hygiene (cleaning of teeth),
Caries in the mouth is the number of filled teeth that were pulled before the time of fall.

How Does Fluoride Systemically Protect Teeth?

Most of the milk teeth developers are completed in the womb of the mother. The growth of permanent teeth begins in the womb and continues to develop gradually over the years along the jaws. In a 7-8 year old child, permanent teeth have largely completed their development.

During the development of teeth, all the structures of fluoride taken by using fluoridated water or fluorine tablets are dispersed, and it also contains the contents of the developing teeth. Fluoride entering the structure during calcification of the teeth strengthens the tooth structure and measures its resistance against caries. We see this as the systemic protective effect of fluorine.

By adding fluorine to water, salt or by using tablets, drop-shaped preparations, both systemic and topical (direct contact on teeth) effects are used on the hair.

What is Fluorine Tablet, Drop?

Both dentists and pediatricians who do not have fluoride in their waters try to provide protection for children with high caries risk, with tablets or drops with a fluoride amount and a content similar to the fluorine extract in the waters.
