Fluoride Treatment for Kids in Holland

added on: July 13, 2012

Children’s fluoride treatments are more important than ever. Studies show that tooth decay in young children is on the rise. It’s not surprising. Just take a moment to consider what our children are eating and drinking these days – soda, juice, sports drinks, candy, sweets. The list is endless and the nutritional value of these items is non-existent.

When a child consumes too much sugar and doesn’t drink enough tap water, decay and cavities are inevitable. They’re getting too much sugar that damages the teeth – and not enough fluoride that protects the teeth.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that protects and strengthens the teeth against cavities. It not only occurs naturally in water, but many municipal water sources are fluoridated.
Take steps to stop tooth decay in its tracks. Limit the amount of sugary drinks or foods your child consumes. Stop buying bottled water and fill your child’s drink bottle with tap water. Make sure your child brushes his or her teeth at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. To keep teeth strong, healthy and protected, children should receive professional fluoride treatments twice a year. If your child is due for a fluoride treatment, contact my Holland dental practice today.
