Fluoride Treatments for Kids and Teens

Fluoride is a tooth strengthening mineral. Fluoride is used frequently on children’s fragile teeth during their cleanings. Fluoride is in drinking water, toothpaste and helps to prevent decay. Fluoride treatments are given in a varnish application.

Be mindful of brushing teeth at the end of the day because the fluoride is sticky and may harden a toothbrush. Sometimes patients are given a prescription for a fluoride toothpaste, called Prevident to help remineralize softened tooth structure and fight cavities in both adults and children.
