Fluoride Treatments In Jackson, CA,
Keeping Kids’ Teeth Strong and Healthy
Fluoride treatment is the single most important thing that you can do to help your child keep their teeth for a lifetime. Fluoride supplements and regular professional fluoride treatments in the dental office will reduce dental decay by 50-70%. Fluoride is one of the most researched subjects there is. It works and it is safe. We have the research to back this up. Ask us.
There is no fluoride found naturally in the ground water in Amador and Calaveras counties and, to date, it is not added to the municipal water supply. Therefore, daily fluoride supplements are necessary. This should start with the mother in-utero (while pregnant), or as soon as possible. Fluoride supplementation should continue until age 14 (longer if there is a decay problem). Fluoride is available by prescription only but is very inexpensive (the cost of a lifetime’s worth of fluoride supplements (tablets or liquid drops) is less than the cost to repair one cavity).
