As a pediatric dental practice, we want to encourage healthy dental habits from a young age. Developing good oral care habits now can keep them happy and healthy for life.

That includes providing silver diamine flouride treatments for our patients in Littleton, CO. Here are a few facts you should know about fluoride.

What Fluoride Is

Fluoride is a mineral found, which can be beneficial for your oral health. The American Dental Association recommends using toothpaste with fluoride.

Fluoride Fixes Teeth

Cavities develop because of teeth decay, which is the result of demineralization of your teeth. Fluoride can remineralize your teeth and even undoing the effects of mild decay.

Fluoride Strengthens Teeth

Fluoride atoms can add calcium and phosphate back to your teeth. This makes them stronger and more likely to resist the effects of harmful bacteria.
