Appropriate fluoride use in your child’s oral care routine helps ensure healthy development and prevent decay. The addition of fluoride to city water sources has been a major factor in the decline of widespread tooth decay in children and adults alike. In most patients, the low levels of fluoride found in toothpaste and drinking water can majorly impact their dental health in a positive way.
Higher levels of fluoride, such as those found in topical gels, can further guard teeth by creating a temporary protective material on the surface of the tooth. Our team incorporates these topical gels in our comprehensive exams and treatments to ensure your child is receiving every defense possible against tooth decay. Along with daily flossing and brushing, both low-level and high-level applications of fluoride can help prevent long-term dental problems.
