Many parents aren’t actually aware of fluoride and its positive effects on oral health! This valuable mineral is found all around us in foods and many sources of tap water, and research has shown that regularly ingesting fluoride can lead to stronger, less cavity-prone teeth in children and adults alike. In fact, the benefits are so widespread that the Centers for Disease Control considers adding fluoride to water supplies one of the most amazing public health achievements our country has accomplished!
At Texas Tiny Teeth Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, Our doctors and the rest of our team will be happy to help you ensure that your son or daughter is receiving the proper amount of fluoride to reap the oral health benefits. Using a safe fluoridated toothpaste is very important! Also, if your family only drinks bottled water, professional fluoride supplements may be recommended.
