      Fluoride Application for Children

      Fluoride Treatment for Kids

      A gentle boost for healthy, happy smiles.

      At Drs. Nicolas & Asp Centers, our Specialist Pediatric Dentists offer fluoride treatments to children of all ages to help protect their developing teeth from cavities and promote lifelong oral health.

      During a fluoride application, a concentrated fluoride solution is “painted” on the teeth in the form of a gel or varnish. This quick and painless procedure can be done during your child’s regular dental check-ups and cleanings, to provide an extra layer of defense against tooth decay.

      Clinical Benefits
      of Fluoride

      Is fluoride safe?

      Yes, when used correctly, fluoride serves as a safe and highly effective method for preventing tooth decay, strengthening enamel, and reducing cavity risk. Consult your child’s dentist for product suggestions and guidance on the frequency of fluoride treatments tailored to your child’s need.

      Frequently Asked Questions

      Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral often found in food and water supplies. Dental products containing fluoride aid in preventing tooth decay by fortifying our enamel, making it more resistant to cavities.

      Our teeth are constantly in battle. Throughout the day, our enamel loses minerals (caldium and phosphate) due to the attack of acids produced by bacteria feeding on sugars in our mouth. This process is called demineralization, and over time, this damage to the enamel sets the stage for cavities.

      Fluoride helps redeposit minerals back into weakened enamel, effectively repairing early damage and preventing cavities from progressing. It also disrupts the metabolism of cavity-causing bacteria, making it harder for them to produce acid, creating a less destructive environment for your teeth.

      The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Dental Association recommend a tiny smear of fluoride toothpaste for children under three and a pea-size dollop for kids aged 3 to 6. Always supervise your children’s brushing and ensure they spit out excess toothpaste.

      Certainly! Your dentist or hygienist might suggest a fluoride application if you have a history of tooth decay, gum disease, or certain conditions like dry mouth.
