Although drinking water, toothpaste, and many mouthwashes contain fluoride, regular dentist-supervised fluoride treatments are vital in strengthening your child's teeth. With Dr. Jackson's supervision, a fluoride varnish or foam can be applied to your child's teeth. This fluoride inhibits the loss of minerals and helps boost the re-mineralization process (strengthening of weakened areas of the tooth), making your child's teeth strong and more resistant to decay. In some cases, it is important that your child not eat or drink for a time after receiving the treatment. We will provide specific instructions.
