Fluoride is a mineral naturally found in some water and foods. If your child is prone to cavities, one thing Dr. Kailey can do to help is a fluoride treatment.
Fluoride is beneficial in two main ways. When proper amounts of fluoride are ingested, the body adds it to developing teeth making them much stronger than they would be otherwise. When fluoride is put directly on teeth (by regular brushing or topical application in the dental office), it can re-harden minor cavities and prevent further enamel breakdown.
