Topical fluorides are applied directly to the tooth enamel. For examples include fluoride toothpastes and mouthwashes as well as fluoride application by the dentist.
Systemic fluorides are those that are swallowed to the entire body. Examples include fluoridated water and dietary fluoride supplements.
The best result to reduce dental caries is achieved by fluoride application topically and systemically.
