Our dentists may recommend your child receive a fluoride treatment if they are more susceptible to getting cavities. Fluoride is a natural mineral found in many foods and water supplies. While your child will receive some fluoride through their diet and brushing with fluoridated toothpaste, a professional fluoride treatment is the best way to strengthen their tooth enamel to stop tooth decay.
Bacteria, sugar and acids in your child’s mouth can attack their tooth enamel, causing it to demineralize and creating a bigger risk for cavities. Fluoride will remineralize tooth enamel and strengthen it against any decay-causing factors. Fluoride will also strengthen your child’s teeth as they develop, helping them keep a healthy smile.
During your child’s appointment, our dentists will check their fluoride levels and determine whether they need a fluoride treatment. Our dentists can provide a fluoride treatment for your child as part of their regular visit if it is determined they could benefit from it. Fluoride treatment takes only a few minutes to complete and is available in the form of a gel, varnish or foam.
Please contact our office is you have any questions about fluoride treatment or want to schedule an appointment for your child.
