Fluoride Varnish


Fluoride Varnish Essex

What is fluoride varnish?

Fluoride varnish provides extra protection against tooth decay when used in addition to brushing.
Fluoride varnish is a pale yellow gel that sets quickly when applied to children’s teeth using a soft brush.
The varnish sets quickly, has a pleasant taste and a fruity smell.

Why do children need it?

When bacteria collects on the teeth, it eventually becomes plaque.
Plaque sticks to the teeth and produces acids that cause demineralization.
Enamel is the hard, clear coating that covers your teeth, and it can be severely weakened and damaged by demineralization.
If left untreated, this leads to tooth decay and cavities.
