Your Child’s Cavities Can Be Stopped by Fluoride

Posted .

Children often develop cavities that weaken their smiles and can disrupt their oral development. We are pleased to help you choose effective sources of fluoride treatment to stop cavity development in your child’s teeth.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that strengthens tooth enamel against the acidic effects of oral bacteria that spur the demineralization of important minerals in the teeth. Fluoride aids in remineralization, or adding back the minerals to the tooth enamel so that the teeth remain in good health.

Your child can benefit from many sources of fluoride in water and oral care products to enhance fluoride exposure. Some communal water supplies in cities have fluoride, or you can add fluoride to your private well. You are welcome to speak with our dentist about fluoride toothpaste and mouthwash to incorporate into your child’s dental hygiene routine to prevent cavities.

Our team at Lionville Family Dentistry can provide professional fluoride treatment as a foam, gel or varnish during your child’s dental checkup. If needed, we can also provide prescription fluoride supplements to keep their teeth in good shape in between dental checkups.
