Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally and is commonly found in toothpaste and drinking water. It aids in the prevention of tooth decay by making the teeth more resistant to the accumulation of decay-causing plaque and sugars. It can also hasten the remineralization process, which rebuilds tooth enamel. We offer professional fluoride application based on risk assessment at each check-up to benefit your child’s oral health and reduce the threat of tooth decay for a safer, happier smile. While fluoride is both safe and effective, high doses can be very hazardous. Dr. Bibiana Ezeanolue will be happy to speak with you about the amount of fluoride your child should be receiving and will make recommendations about the appropriate amount to use at home.
