Importance of Professional Fluoride Treatment for Children

Professional Fluoride Treatment in Boston MA Area

When it comes to your children’s oral health, an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. Treating cavities is no fun! Routine dental cleanings and professional fluoride treatment from the office of Anjum A. Ansari DMD in Boston, Massachusetts, can improve your child’s oral health. Tooth decay is a common problem among children. Fluoride strengthens your children’s teeth to make them more resistant to decay. Fluoride treatment is one of the best ways to protect your children’s teeth in their formative years.

 It is also important that children are screened for their jaw development and tooth alignment while they are still growing. We assess each child at each visit and monitor whether they will need orthodontic intervention early on. This can prevent long, uncomfortable, and costly procedures in adulthood.

Types of Fluoride Treatments

 There are numerous ways to ensure your children get the fluoride protection they need. These include:

  • Drinking fluoridated water from the tap
  • Using fluoride toothpaste when brushing your teeth
  • Rinsing with a mouthwash that contains fluoride
  • Getting a professional fluoride treatment at your local dentist

After a routine cleaning, Anjum A. Ansari, D.M.D. can apply topical fluoride to your children’s teeth to protect them against cavities. Professional fluoride treatments are an essential part of your child’s preventive dental care.

Importance of Fluoride Treatment for Children

Young children, in particular, don’t always remember to brush their teeth. Poor oral hygiene combined with a “sweet tooth” can easily lead to cavities. Helping your child develop good oral care habits is the first step toward keeping cavities at bay. Routine dental cleanings and fluoride treatments from your Boston dentist will also help keep your children’s teeth healthy.

Fluoride works by strengthening the enamel of your children’s teeth to prevent cavities. It can also help reverse decay that’s just beginning to form.
