The application of fluoride varnish is an effective method against tooth decay that can appear in the primary or permanent dentition. It is also effective in treatments against tooth sensitivity.

Fluoride varnish is easy to apply, offers greater absorption of minerals on the teeth, and is very safe, unlike other topical fluoride treatments (gels and rinses).

What is the role of space maintainers? Types of maintainers

Pediatric Dentistry

Loss of a primary tooth can happen from trauma or tooth extraction. One of the consequences of this loss is that the permanent molars tilt in the space left by the primary tooth.


That inclination will cause a bad bite and in addition to taking away space from the future permanent tooth that will erupt. Space maintainers protect the space left by the primary tooth, for when new permanent teeth appear.

Fluoride varnish application in children

Fluoride Varnish

Having a preventive attitude is the best way to avoid the presence of the much-feared dental caries. One of the prevention methods is the use of fluoride varnish, whose action is to mineralize and strengthen the structure of the tooth (enamel).


Fluoride varnish treatments can best help prevent decay when a child is also brushing using the right amount of toothpaste with fluoride, flossing regularly, getting regular dental care, and eating a healthy diet.

ORAL HYGIENE : How to care for your baby's gums

Oral Hygiene

There is no greater joy than to see our healthy babies smiling at life. And for that we must create the habit of good oral hygiene even before their first teeth appear.


Having no teeth is not an excuse for not cleaning your gums with gauze or a soft, damp cloth. You don't need to use any toothpaste yet. Simply wrap the cloth or gauze around your index finger and rub it gently over his gums. Getting your baby used to having his mouth cleaned as part of his daily routine should make it easier to transition into toothbrushing later on, too.
