Avoid costly tooth restorations by practicing good preventive care. At Daghlian Pediatric Dentistry & Sokolowski Orthodontics, our dentist and team recommend fluoride treatments as a part of your child’s oral health care. Fluoride strengthens the teeth, protecting the teeth from decay and helping your child to develop less cavities.
What Is Fluoride?
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that is found in water and many foods. Fluoridated water is most commonly found in local tap water. Another common place you will find fluoride is in toothpaste. Our dentist can also provide your child with a professional fluoride treatment.
How Does It Help?
As you eat and drink each day, the bacteria, sugars and acids found in those foods attack the teeth, demineralizing the tooth enamel. Fluoride helps to counteract this problem, remineralizing the teeth to prevent decay.
Why Does My Child Need a Fluoride Treatment?
Although fluoride can be found in water, toothpaste and some foods, Dr. Rita Daghlian may recommend that that your child receive fluoride treatments in Huntington Beach, California, at our dental office. This treatment is available in the form of gels varnishes and foams to suit the needs of your child.
If you have any questions about this treatment and its benefits, please call our office at 714-848-0234. Dr. Rita Daghlian looks forward to caring for your child’s smile.
