When your child comes for their dental cleaning, a topical fluoride varnish will be placed on their teeth following the exam. Fluoride helps strengthen any areas of weakened enamel and can remineralize places that are beginning the process of forming a cavity. Our varnish treatment reduces your child’s cavity risk by over 30% when done twice a year. In some instances, dietary fluoride supplements may be recommended depending on a child’s home water source for those that are at a high risk for cavities.
