Acidul (Sodium Fluoride)

General Information

Acidul (Sodium Fluoride) is indicated for the prevention of cavities. It makes teeth stronger and more resistant to decay. It is caused by acid and bacteria.

This medication is helpful if you’re at risk of developing cavities. It happens when bacteria build-up on teeth and gums. It forms a sticky layer of plaque.  Plaque makes an acid that erodes the teeth and gum tissue.

This being an essential oral health treatment for decades. This drug supports healthy tooth enamel. It fights the bacteria that harm teeth and gums. Tooth enamel is the outer protective layer of each tooth.

How does Acidul (Sodium Fluoride) work?

Acidul (Sodium Fluoride) acts systemically before tooth eruption and topically afterward. It is by increasing tooth resistance to acid dissolution. It is also by promoting remineralization and by inhibiting the cariogenic microbial process.

Acidulation provides greater topical fluoride uptake by dental enamel than neutral solutions. When topical fluoride is applied, the formation of insoluble materials within the dentinal tubules blocks transmission of painful stimuli.
