As a parent, you want to do the most you can to help your kids have incredible oral health. It’s hard, though, to stay on top of the oral health of your younger children. From getting them to school on time to keeping them in bed, it’s easy to forget the little things to help your children have great oral health.

That’s why it’s recommended you use fluoride to help your children get the best oral health possible. Let’s examine a few reasons that Dr. Manshadi, Dr. Roden-Johnson, and Dr. Afridi so strongly recommends fluoride use for your children.

Why fluoride?

Fluoride is a natural substance proven over time to aid in cavity prevention and gum health, though it’s most effective on children. Fluoride in the form of supplements, tablets, or even in toothpaste, can do a lot to help preserve the oral health of your children.

What does it do?

Specifically, fluoride is able to restore the enamel of your teeth. Our everyday diets contain food and drink that erode enamel – the outermost layer of our teeth that protect them from decay – and adding fluoride to your diet ensures that your enamel stays in great shape.
