Fluoride for Children

By Dr. O. Karnakova

Fluoride treatment for children is essential to help prevent decay and helps them grow with a healthy dentition. The guidelines for fluoride are based on their age to ensure adequate levels are met. Children under the age of two should not receive any topical form of fluoride due to the potential of swallowing it. Many communities contain fluoridated drinking water and is adequate for children two and under. If your community does not offer fluoridated water, it can be offered as a dietary supplement.
