Fluoride

A substance that helps teeth resist decay by making their enamel stronger and increasing the rate of remineralization at the beginning of the cavity stage, fluoride is an important part of a child’s dental health. Nearly every municipality in the United States fluoridates its water supply; regularly drinking water treated with fluoride in addition to brushing and flossing every day significantly reduces a child’s risk of getting cavities.

We’ll recommend fluoride for your child only after conducting a thorough risk assessment. Beginning at 6 months of age, we’ll prescribe fluoride supplements, daily fluoride toothpaste and professionally applied in-office fluoride treatment based on your child’s risk of developing cavities. Note, too, that bottled water is not fluoridated — from the standpoint of cavity prevention, tap water is by far the best choice for your children.
