How do I know if my child is getting enough fluoride?
Fluoride is a natural mineral that is incredibly important for the health of your child’s teeth. Most cities in the United States have added fluoride to their city water supply, which has been proven to reduce the number of cavities in children. Unfortunately however, many children still do not receive enough of this very important mineral, in spite of using fluoride toothpaste.
One of the easiest ways to ensure that your child receives enough fluoride is to have the pediatric dentist test the fluoride levels in your child’s main source of drinking water. If this is not enough to provide your child with adequate fluoride, our dentist can prescribe fluoride supplements to ensure that your child’s dental health remains well protected.
