Why Fluoride Is Essential For Your Child’s Oral Health

This message from Pediatric Dental Center is about fluoride adn your child’s dental health.

Fluoride is a mineral that helps teeth stay strong. It is found in some foods and water and makes toothpastes more effective at fighting cavities.

Fluoride plays a central role in your youngster’s oral health. Your child should start using fluoride toothpaste when they are old enough to spit while brushing. Start with a tiny pea-sized dab, gradually increasing the amount as they grow.

Periodic fluoride treatments help teeth by making them stronger and more resistant to the acids that cause cavities.

At Pediatric Dental Center, we remind parents that preventative dentistry like fluoride treatment helps to protect your child against tooth decay. Ask us about dental sealants! Call us for an appointment today!
