Fluoride Prevents Cavities
Fluoride is important for you and your child.
Fluoride is a common element found on the earth’s crust. It is found in soil and in fresh and ocean waters. Fluoride can be thought of as nature’s way to fight cavities. It helps prevent cavities in children and adults by making teeth strong and more resistant to decay. Dentists and scientists have known for more than 70 years that fluoride strengthens teeth, prevents cavities, and is safe to use.
