Prevent dental decay with
Fluoride Topical Application

Topical fluoride can be delivered by professional application in forms of gel, foam or varnish, and home used products such as toothpaste and mouth rinse.

Our mouth contains bacteria that feed on sugar in food we eat and beverages we drink. This produces acid that can wear away the hard, outer shell of our teeth (enamel) which leads to cavities. Fluoride protects teeth by making our teeth stronger and more resistant to acid, not only reducing the risk of cavities but even helping to control the early signs of decay.

There is a lifelong benefit of fluoride and guess what it works well for adults too.

Unfortunately, some children are more susceptible to cavities than others – the oral environment and salivary flow (how much saliva is produced in your child’s mouth during the day) play a big role in this. Despite parents’ efforts, tooth decay is sometimes unavoidable therefore, topical application of fluoride is applied by the dental care professional directly to the teeth surface to prevent cavities.

This is a simple solution that can slow and prevent tooth decay in children, and Appolonia is your destination for effective, monitored fluoride treatment in Abu Dhabi.

How does
Fluoride Prevent Cavities

Fluoride leads to heavy remineralization of the enamel surface, and subsequent acid attacks will be slowed down from penetrating more deeply into the tooth structure.
Who should be having topical fluoride application?

1) Children with a history of frequent cavities.

If your child has one cavity every year or every other year, you might discuss with a pediatric dentist the need for a fluoride varnish.

2) Children with special needs.

Apply Topical Fluoride at Appolonia


At Appolonia, our team will recommend the right amount of fluoride for your child, as well as scheduling a regular fluoride application.

We recommend fluoride applications twice a year for all children above two years of age.

Fluoride application is a 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 colors the teeth for up to 3 days, before it gradually wears off if fluoride varnish is used.

Fluoride Facts

What is fluoride?

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that protects teeth by making them stronger and more resistant to acid, which in turn reduces the risk of cavities.

What are the major sources of fluoride?

Fluoride is found naturally in fresh water, the concentration varies, that is why the amount added isn’t consistent between geographical areas. Studies have shown that having fluoride in public water systems has prevented tooth decay in children and adults by at least 25 percent.                                                                                                                                                                         

Five-year-old children in fluoridated areas are 28% are less likely to have tooth decay than those in non-fluoridated areas.

Does fluoride toothpaste provide protection against cavities?

Evidence-based reviews strongly support the use of fluoridated toothpaste. It is found to be effective in reducing dental caries in children.                                                                                                                                                          

Using no more than a smear or rice-size amount of fluoridated toothpaste for children less than three years of age may decrease the risk of fluorosis. Using no more than a pea-size amount of fluoridated toothpaste is appropriate for children aged three to six.

Are there any adverse effects of fluoride on dental health?

The best available scientific evidence shows no association between the recommended amount of fluoride used to prevent tooth decay and any harmful effects.

The fluoride at optimal levels in toothpaste and community water sources is safe and effective.

Is fluoride safe for my child?

Seventy years of research has proven that fluoride prevents cavities, and now, there is no other toothpaste ingredient with this kind of track record. For this reason, dentists have been recommending fluoride toothpaste to their patients for decades.
