Fluoride is an important mineral that helps your teeth fight cavities before they appear. In our office, children will receive fluoride once a year with the supervision of the hygienist, and child’s parent.
We recommend using fluoride toothpaste for both children, and adults. As for children, they must be old enough to spit out the toothpaste out after brushing their teeth. Swallowing fluoride is not recommended by our office and is toxic.
