Fluoride Protects Against Cavities

Flouride is your child's friend for a lifetime of oral health.

Teeth are covered with a sticky film called plaque. Plaque uses the food we eat to make acids that cause cavities.

But fluoride fights acids in the mouth and makes teeth stronger.

Even before your baby’s teeth come in, fluoridated water will make their teeth stronger.

After teeth come in, keep guarding against cavities with fluoridated water and fluoride toothpaste, plus fluoride treatments at the dentist. Avoid bottled water because it usually doesn’t include fluoride.
