Children’s Fluoride Treatments
Fluoride is one of the best weapons against tooth decay, especially for children. While many city water supplies do have added fluoride, about one-third of towns and cities do not use fluoride in their city-provided water, plus private homes with private water wells do not have fluoride provided. At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we offer fluoride treatments as part of our pediatric dentistry options for patients that could benefit from additional fluoride to protect their teeth from decay.
Cavity Protection with Fluoride Treatment
Fluoride can have a vital impact on preventing cavities in children, protecting their teeth from harm. Fluoride helps make teeth resistant to decay and even can help repair small spots of decay when it begins. Keeping your child’s teeth free of cavities can help improve the overall health of their teeth, as well as appearance. Plus, it is an affordable, preventive measure to ward off expensive dental repairs for cavities.
Fluoride treatments come in a variety of forms, including gel, rinses and tablets if your child is not getting enough fluoride. Dr. Chong, our pediatric specialty dentist, will evaluate your child’s teeth and fluoride protection to determine if fluoride treatments should be considered for your child.
At Georgia Orthodontics & Children’s Dentistry, we believe in using preventive care to protect your child’s teeth and health, including using fluoride treatments when appropriate.
