Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that helps to make your teeth more resistant to decay and can also help to repair early decay by encouraging the remineralization of the tooth’s surface.
We recommend patients begin receiving fluoride treatments at the age of three years old and continue to receive them as part of their regular dental care. This regular treatment helps to strengthen the surface of your teeth so they can better resist decay.
Occasionally other fluoride treatments may be recommended for children who are very susceptible to dental caries and have experienced a high level of tooth decay. These supplemental fluoride treatments could include fluoride tablets, drops, rinses and varnishes.
