How Fluoride Can Help Prevent Cavities and Tooth Decay

Last updated 5 years ago

Fluoride is a main ingredient in oral hygiene products like toothpaste and mouthwash. Paying attention to the amount of fluoride that is present in your regular tap water will help you determine the appropriate amount of fluoride to include in your oral cleansing process. Since your child’s teeth are still developing, this video explains how you should use fluoride to help him protect his teeth and prevent tooth decay. 

For many years, dentists have recognized this mineral’s impressive ability to strengthen tooth enamel and prevent cavities. While fluoride may be very helpful to your health when used in small quantities, ingesting large amounts can be toxic.

Going to the dentist doesn’t have to be an experience that your children dislike. Call Best Kids Dentist at (718) 491-5300 to learn how our pediatric dental staff can make your child’s visit exciting and fun.
