Fluoride

Your child should begin using fluoride toothpaste with the appearance of that first tooth. Remember to use only a rice-grain amount of toothpaste twice a day for children ages 0 to 3 years old. Keep toothpaste in an area that your child cannot reach!

Fluoride is effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay by coating teeth and preventing plaque from building up and hardening on the tooth’s surface.

Receiving a fluoride treatment from our office is an important step in preventing cavites!

When choosing an at-home fluoride product (such as toothpaste or mouthwash), always check for the American Dental Association’s (ADA) seal of acceptance. Products marked with the ADA seal of approval have been carefully examined and approved by the ADA based on safety and effectiveness.
