Fluoride varnish for Children

Fluoride varnish can be used to help prevent tooth decay or stop it getting worse. It is a safe, concentrated form of fluoride that helps to strengthen enamel and make it more resistant to attacks from acid.

The varnish comes as a fruity flavoured, yellow gel and can be given to children over three.

Treatment steps

  • We apply the fluoride varnish with a small, soft brush, which only takes a few minutes.
  • The varnish rapidly sets and can be brushed off after 4-12 hours.

The fluoride varnish is most effective when applied two to four times a year and should be used in conjunction with daily brushing.
