Did you know that 42 percent of children between the ages of 2 and 11 have had cavities in their primary teeth? That’s a large number! One of the things that can help fight cavities is fluoride. We’re sharing a video by the American Dental Association (ADA) that talks about what fluoride is and what it does.
When you bring your child in for a checkup, we may recommend fluoride treatments that will further protect their tooth enamel. You’ll also want to make sure your child brushes their teeth with a fluoride toothpaste that has the ADA seal of approval.
