We can help you to understand how much fluoride you child needs to make sure they have optimum oral health.
The Benefits of Fluoride Treatment
Most parents are not aware that their children are actually exposed to more fluoride than they know. This is where a thorough dental exam can help you understand just how much fluoride your child needs.
Fluoride treatments have consistently been proven to be beneficial to your child’s teeth. However, there needs to be a balance in the amount of fluoride they are getting. Too little or too much can have negative effects on your child. Not having enough can prevent their teeth from not being strong enough to resist decay. Too much fluoride can cause discolorations in the permanent teeth.
Fluoride treatments can help your child’s teeth become strong. This is especially true when it comes their permanent teeth.
Fluoride treatments are generally recommended when a child’s environment may not provide the best access to fluoride or the child’s teeth are unusually soft.
Sometimes, our children are exposed to more fluoride than we think and sometimes less. We can help you determine if your child needs more or less fluoride which will depend on the condition of their teeth. An exam will help us in making that determination and we will communicate with you what we recommend when it comes to fluoride.
We will work with you and your child to find the best solution for them. Our care is based on the individual needs of your child. We will discuss the treatment plan in depth with you so that you will have a good understanding of what to expect and what needs to be done in order for your child to have the best oral health.
