Fluoride in small amounts is safe for your child and actually helps to build and strengthen their developing teeth.
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral typically found in drinking water and proven to help strengthen tooth enamel and even reverse tooth decay in some cases.
Dr. Lan Nguyen and Dr. Christopher Chau recommend fluoride treatments in Corona, CA, for kids who aren't getting enough through their toothpaste and drinking water. A fluoride treatment is quick, non-invasive, and typically covered by dental insurance since it's a preventive procedure.
We can apply professional strength fluoride to your child's teeth during their routine teeth cleaning procedure without having to schedule any additional time from your busy schedule.
At All Smiles Orthodontics & Children's Dentistry, we also offer silver diamine fluoride (SDF) treatments that help keep small areas of tooth decay from spreading and further breaking down your little one's tooth.
The silver in SDF kills bacteria, while the fluoride helps rebuild tooth enamel, stabilizing your child's tooth and possibly preventing them from having to endure numbing or drilling during a dental filling procedure.
If you have questions about fluoride treatments for kids, contact our Corona pediatric dental office at (951) 898-8845 for more information.
