What is Fluoride Varnish?
Fluoride varnish is a protective coating that is painted on teeth to help prevent new cavities and to help stop cavities that have already started.
The painted on fluoride varnish is sticky, so it attaches to the teeth easily and makes the outer layer (enamel) of the teeth harder, helping to prevent cavities.
Fluoride varnish is a topical fluoride treatment, which strengthens the teeth and reduces the prevalence of decay.
What are the Benefits of Fluoride Varnish?
Fluoride varnish releases fluoride over several months, which strengthens the teeth and helps to prevent decay. Fluoride varnish can prevent new decay by 60% and arrest decay that has already started.
Fluoride varnish is painless, quick, and easy to apply.
