Preventive Flourides

Our moto at cosmodent is “prevention is better than cure”.

Fluorides can help your tooth’s enamel to turn into a super enamel which can resist all erosive forces. It is one of the best preventive treatment available for kids.

How the incorporation of fluoride into the tooth enamel allows the tooth to be more resistant to demineralization by acid and ensuing tooth decay?. Normally our teeth have a material called hydroxyapatite which is a little pron for erosion under the influence of some acids and other chemicals. Once this hydroxyapatite come in contact with fluoride it changes into fluorohydroxyapatite which is a strong material.

How to get fluorides come in contact with the tooth?

Well there are two ways to make the fluoride available for the tooth.

  • Systemic Fluoride: - These circulate through the bloodstream and are incorporated into developing teeth.
  • Topical application: - These are placed directly on the teeth by a dentist or by patients themself

How we apply fluoride onto the tooth?

  • Foam: Fluoride in the form of foam is sprayed onto a special tray and placed in the mouth for 10-15 minutes
  • Fluoride paste: Application of prophylactic (or preventive) pastes are applied after plaque removal which helps in replenishing lost fluoride in high concentration




Fluoride Varnish: Single tufted brushes are used to paint on fluoride varnish on to sensitive areas of teeth or areas prone to caries such as the joints between the teeth  (proximal surfaces’) which are more prone to dental decay

Steps in Applying the fluoride varnish

  • Dry child’s teeth with gauze
  • Apply a thin layer of the fluoride varnish to all surfaces of the teeth
  • Once it is applied, the fluoride varnish sets quickly with contact of the saliva
  • Repeat the fluoride varnish application every
  • 3 – 6 months as necessary

Advantages of fluoride application.

  • Prevention of dental caries.
  • Prevent erosion of enamel (the first layer of tooth).
  • Increase the strength of enamel.
  • Decrease any sensitivity of tooth.

Applying dental fluoride onto the baby teeth will help them to have a good future

Prevention is always better than cure.

That’s why you have an option called pits and fissure sealant

What are Pits and Fissures?

Pits and fissures are the deep grooves that make up the chewing surfaces of your teeth. These grooves are found on both your premolars and molars, though a pit and fissure cavity is usually deeper on the molars than on the premolars.

What is pits and fissure sealant?

To prevent the development of dental decay at cosmodent our pedodontist will suggest you pits and fissure sealant. Dental sealants (also termed pit and fissure sealants, or simply fissure sealants) are a dental treatment intended to prevent tooth decay. Teeth have recesses on their biting surfaces; the back teeth have fissures (grooves) and some front teeth have cingulum pits
