Fluoride and Hydroxyapatite Treatments

At Kids 1st Pediatric Dentistry, we offer special treatments to strengthen children’s developing teeth and make them more resistant to cavities.

Fluoride is applied to the teeth in a varnish form using a brush. Fluoride helps by making the tooth more resistant to the build-up of decay-causing plaque and sugars. It can also speed re-mineralization as well as disrupt acid erosion in teeth.

In addition to receiving fluoride treatment at our pediatric dental office, it can be applied to the teeth through fluoridated toothpaste and mouth rinses. Mouth rinses containing fluoride in lower strengths are available over-the-counter. However, stronger mouth rinses can be prescribed as needed. Dr. Carolina will advise you about your child’s fluoride needs.

We strive to provide your child with the highest quality care, including the use of fluoride. For more information or to request an appointment, contact Kids 1st Pediatric Dentistry.
