What’s the Fuss About Fluoride?
Fluoride is a natural element that helps strengthen tooth enamel and prevent decay. Every day minerals are lost off a tooth’s enamel due to bacteria and sugars. In fact, Fluoride is so important, that it is often added to a city’s drinking water, which is the case in the suburbs surrounding our Apple Valley dentist office. Childrens dental services such as fluoride treatments help prevent enamel decay.
Fluoride treatments are optional, but strongly encouraged at Dakota Dental Center. It helps keep teeth strong and dental work clean from bacteria. Most childrens dentist offices will recommend fluoride treatments at each cleaning. Your kids and dentist will have a conversation prior to the treatment so they will better understand how the fluoride will help them maintain healthy teeth. Fluoride treatments are pain-free and recommended for both children and adults.
Make sure your child receives a fluoride treatment at their next visit to Dakota Dental.
