Questions about fluoride treatments for kids

What does fluoride do for my child's teeth?

Fluoride plays a crucial role in dental health by making teeth more resistant to decay. It strengthens tooth enamel (the outer layer of the tooth) and can help repair the early stages of tooth decay.

When should my child start getting fluoride treatments?

As soon as their first tooth erupts. Early introduction of fluoride helps protect against cavities and supports healthy tooth development. At our practice, we can provide personalized advice on the right time to begin fluoride treatments.

Are there any side effects of fluoride treatments for kids?

Fluoride treatments are safe and effective when used as directed. The risk of side effects is minimal, but overuse can lead to dental fluorosis, which affects the appearance of developing teeth. This is why it’s important to follow professional recommendations on the use of fluoride treatments and products.

How often does my child need fluoride treatments?

The frequency of fluoride treatments can vary based on your child’s risk of tooth decay. Generally, we recommend fluoride treatments every 6-12 months. We’ll assess your child’s dental health and provide a customized treatment plan to meet their specific needs.

Can fluoride treatments help if cavities are already present?

Fluoride treatments can help in the early stages of tooth decay, potentially reversing the damage. However, once a cavity has formed, additional treatment, such as a dental filling, may be necessary.
