Studies indicated that tooth decay in young children is on the rise. It’s not surprising. Consider what our children are eating and drinking these days – soda, juice, candy, sports drinks, energy drinks, sweets. The list is endless and the nutritional value non-existent.
With this news, it’s obvious that children’s fluoride treatments
are more important than ever.
When a child consumes too much sugar and doesn’t drink enough fluoridated tap water, decay and cavities are inevitable.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that protects and strengthens the teeth against cavities. It occurs naturally in water and many municipal water sources are fluoridated.
Do your part to protect your children’s teeth. Instead of giving them bottled water, fill your child’s drink bottle with tap water. Make sure your child brushes at least twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste. Most importantly, make sure your child receives two professional fluoride treatments per year.
