Fluoride in water works as an effective topical for teeth. While it absorbs into the body from the water we consume and is blended into the saliva, the saliva works to harden the enamel. This procedure is called remineralization. This works great for children as well. This works to remineralize the white spots on the teeth so that decay is repressed.
In-office application is applied after polishing and scaling. It is best to not eat anything for 30 minutes and refrain from brushing for 6 hours after application. When over-fluoridation occurs owing to excess water fluoride content, it can lead to ‘fluorosis’, which leads to discoloration of teeth.
