Dr. Jeffrey Chung and associates may recommend fluoride treatments to help strengthen your child’s teeth as they grow and develop. As fluoride is a natural mineral, your child will receive a certain amount from their diet. Fluoride is also present in many toothpastes and water supplies. However, our dentists may recommend professional treatments to boost their fluoride levels and provide additional protection for their teeth.
As your child eats and drinks throughout the day, the bacteria, sugars and acids in their mouth attack and demineralize their teeth. Fluoride remineralizes tooth enamel to prevent cavities from developing and keep your child’s teeth strong and healthy as they come in. Our dentists will check your child’s fluoride levels during their dental checkups to make sure that they are receiving enough fluoride. If your child does need a fluoride treatment, we can provide this preventive service during their visit in just a few minutes. We may also recommend fluoride if your child’s teeth are simply more prone to decay. Professional fluoride is available in the form of a gel, varnish or foam.
