Fluoride Varnishes CATEGORY DESCRIPTION

Fluoride varnish typically consists of 5% sodium fluoride in a sticky colophon or resin base, which helps the product adhere to teeth and flow into fissures and interproximal areas. The addition of alcohol expedites drying. Used as a cavity liner, a desensitizer, and for caries prevention, these products are typically easy to apply, low-cost, and safe. As a preventive, fluoride varnish has found an important niche for use in both pediatric and elderly populations at high risk for caries.

 

When used as a desensitizing agent, fluoride varnish is applied to the exposed area to seal the dentin surface. When used for caries prevention, a thin layer is applied to clean, dry teeth with a brush or applicator. The varnish dries to a dull film and forms a sticky covering over the tooth, becoming hard upon contact with saliva. If needed, floss can be used to pull the varnish further into interproximal areas. The fluoride deposited on the tooth surface renders the surface impenetrable, and purportedly prevents the formation of new caries and slows or stops decay progression.

    Many people I meet from other states automatically assume that, in Wisconsin, we eat cheese. A lot. All kinds. Every day. Morning and night. We like our dairy products as much as anyone, but Wisconsinites have an especially “cheesy” reputation, partly because of the cheeseheads at the Green Bay Packers games. Americans eat over 30 pounds of...
