Need to Know: Is Fluoride Safe for Children?

flourideFluoride strengthens tooth enamel and protects teeth from decay. In many cities, fluoride is added to drinking water. However, using too many fluoride-enriched products can expose children’s teeth to too much fluoride.

Key takeaways:

- Fluoride is a natural mineral, considered safe for children.

- Supervise young children's use of fluoride toothpaste and encourage them to spit the toothpaste out.

- Fluoride mouthwashes should not be used by children under six unless prescribed by a dentist.

Your dentist can discuss your child's fluoride use and if they need additional supplements.
