Fluoride Treatments are one of the best defenses against tooth decay! Using fluoride toothpaste and drinking fluoridated water is usually the best source for your child receiving its benefits. Children, between the ages of six months and 16 years, may require these fluoride supplements as part of their fluoride treatments.
Our pediatric dentists at Reardon Dental, will consider many different factors before recommending a fluoride supplement. Your child’s age, risk of developing dental decay, and the different liquids your child drinks are important considerations. Bottled, filtered and well waters vary in their fluoride amount, so a water analysis may sometimes be necessary to ensure your child is receiving the proper amount.
