At Molar Bear Pediatric Dentistry in Houston, TX, we are strong believers that preventive dentistry is an essential part of maintaining optimal oral health. For this reason, we recommend that every child that visits our dental practice receive fluoride treatment. Fluoride has been proven to be effective in strengthening teeth and protecting them from damage due to tooth decay.
At Molar Bear Pediatric Dentistry, parents often ask us if fluoride is an important part of dental care. And the obvious answer is, yes! Fluoride can help protect your child’s teeth from decay and cavities along with strengthening their teeth. In fact, recent research has shown that fluoride treatments can even reverse early stages of decay!
During your child’s appointment at Molar Bear Pediatric Dentistry, their teeth and gums will be thoroughly examined. If any signs of potential tooth decay are present, we may suggest fluoride treatments for your child. Our fluoride treatments are comfortable, easy and can be completed in just a few minutes, leaving your child with additional protecting from decay and cavities. We do recommend that your child wait at least 30 minutes before eating, drinking or rinsing their mouth to ensure the most protection possible.
