Fluoride is a safe, highly effective substance that helps teeth become more resistant to dental decay and results in significantly fewer cavities. It is found in:
- Fluoridated water
- Certain foods
- Dental products such as toothpaste and mouthwash
An evaluation of the fluoride levels in your primary drinking water source is done during the visit since children between the ages of six months and 16 years may require fluoride supplements. Fluoride can also be applied topically during your regular visit.
