How Does Fluoride Work?
When we eat sugar, the enamel in our teeth can demineralize and make them more prone to developing cavities. Fluoride helps to prevent this demineralization, working to remineralize the tooth and provide strength.
There are two ways your children can receive fluoride: systemically and topically.
What to Expect During a Fluoride Treatment at Kenmore Pediatric Dentistry
At your child’s cleaning and exam appointment, we will determine if a fluoride treatment is right for him or her. We take the time to evaluate risk factors of developing cavities for each child, and a varnish can be easily and quickly applied with a brush.
