How Fluoride Treatments Can Help With Tooth Decay
According to experts from John Hopkins All Children’s Hospital, “Fluoride helps because, when teeth are growing, it mixes with tooth enamel — that hard coating on your teeth. That prevents tooth decay or cavities. But fluoride can help even after your teeth are formed. It works with saliva to protect tooth enamel from plaque and sugars.” Fluoride treatments are also important because the fewer cavity and tooth decay issues right now mean there’s a lesser chance for tooth complications once your child is an adult.
