Is Topical Fluoride Safe for My baby's Teeth?

Posted on 3/6/2023 by Thomas Plunkett DMD
Is Topical Fluoride Safe for My baby's Teeth?Dental complications such as dental cavities and tooth decay affect children the most due to their frequent sugary foods with no proper dental care. Therefore, a parent should consider their children's dental care and monitor their behavior and feeding habits. We deliver and offer important advice and education to ensure that your child develops strong, healthy teeth. You can contribute to your child's proper dental health by accompanying them to our dentist's office. We apply a topical fluoride treatment to children's teeth to strengthen them during their development stages.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring compound in soil or water, but when administered in the dentist's clinic, it's referred to as topical Fluoride. The compound is crucial to strengthening your child's teeth, especially the enamel, and hinders erosion from bacteria and acidic contents in the mouth.

Fluoride is Completely Safe When Administered with Professional Care

The safety of Fluoride is determined by the amount of it administered, as it's considered safe when given in small amounts. Our dentist often applies a pea-size amount to your child's delicate set of teeth. The Fluoride is applied over your child's teeth and left to rest for about 10 minutes for proper absorption by the teeth hence strengthening them in the process.

Bring Your Child for Regular Fluoride Treatment

Our dentist recommends having your child visit our clinics as soon as they show signs of teeth development. This will give us ample time to monitor the growth and development of your baby teeth. Our pediatric dental specialists will then apply topical Fluoride to fuel their enamel's strengthening process.

For topical Fluoride application to your kid's teeth, call us and book an appointment with our experienced dentists today.
