The best dental treatment is no treatment at all. Therefore, at Opulent Dental we take preventive measures to reduce the incidence of dental problems such as caries in children.

Optimal use of fluoride is crucial for the health of the teeth. American Dental Association suggests that kids aged 6 to 16 should have a little fluoride intake every day. Usually the teeth attain adequate fluoride from the water they drink and the toothpaste they use.

Why do your children need fluoride?

However, at times, the children do not get sufficient fluoride; this is why we consider it our responsibility at Opulent Dental to provide the supplementary fluoride to the teeth. Even if a child presents at the clinic with pinpoint caries, we apply a layer of fluoride to make the teeth stronger and resistant to caries.

The teeth absorb the fluoride that helps to fight against tooth decay. However, too much fluoride is also bad for the teeth; it can cause white spots on the surface of your teeth, comprising the structural integrity. Therefore, at Opulent Dental we encourage our patients to learn their needs and wants of their teeth, because moderation is the key.
