How do I know if my child is getting enough fluoride?

Fluoride is essential for helping to protect your child’s teeth and keeping them healthy. While fluoride treatments alone are not enough to provide your child with complete protection from cavities, they are an important part of the service we provide at our dental office in Vinton.

Most of us get enough fluoride from public water supplies and the foods we eat. But sometimes the amounts available are not sufficient to protect your child’s teeth from decay. Only Dr. Law or one of our hygienists can determine if your child needs additional fluoride treatments.

It is very important to be proactive with your child’s oral health care. Baby teeth are critical for the development of healthy permanent teeth, and we need to do everything we can to protect them. If your child loses a tooth too early, it can affect the development of permanent teeth.

That is why we recommend regular dental visits, even when your child only has their baby teeth. After all, what better gift can you give your child than a head start on a lifetime of good oral health?

We’re here to help make sure that happens, and we look forward to working with your child. Dr. Law and our team are parents, too, and you can be sure we will keep your child feeling happy and secure during treatment. Please phone our dental office in Vinton to arrange a convenient appointment for your child.
