Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that helps protect against cavities. We recommend that your child’s teeth receive some form of fluoride every day, being careful that he or she not swallow too much.
Because fluoride use is based on a child’s cavity risk, it is best to discuss fluoride with Drs. Morris and Associates at your child’s visit to our office. In recommending fluoride, we will take into account your child’s cavity risk and whether your community has water fluoridation.
