What is fluoride. Fluoride is a natural mineral that is effective in preventing cavities and tooth decay by coating your teeth and preventing plaque from building-up, and hardening on the tooth’s surface.
Why we use it. As a child learns to take care of her teeth properly, fluoride provides a barrier to reduce the spread of tooth decay.
What to expect. Little Smiles offers fluoride treatments with different flavors for a child to choose. A fluoride treatment is included in preventative care appointments. Your child’s hygienist will provide you with further instructions regarding eating and drinking immediately following treatment.
