As parents and guardians, you want your children to have healthy teeth and gums, and that is why it is important to begin good dental habits, such as checkups and cleanings, early in their lives. Another way we can help protect their teeth is with a fluoride treatment, which can be done at each check-up.
What is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a safe and natural element that can help in the prevention of tooth decay. The fluoride inhibits the loss of minerals and helps strengthen weakened areas of the tooth making your child’s teeth strong and more resistant to decay. Although drinking water, toothpaste and many mouthwashes contain fluoride, regular dentist-supervised fluoride treatments are vital in strengthening your child’s teeth.
What is the Treatment Like?
The fluoride varnish we use is safe and used by dentists around the world. We “paint” a small amount on the outside of the teeth with a brush. The varnish leaves a light coating on the teeth. Children can eat and drink right away and can brush normal that same night.
