Prevent Tooth Decay In The Washington DC, Alexandria & Arlington Sedation Area
in proper dosage, has been shown to significantlyreduce dental decay. When fluoridated water
has less than the ideal amount or is not available, fluoride supplements are recommended. (A call to your local water district is all that is necessary to determine whether your water has fluoride or not.)
When supplements are needed, the administration of fluoride supplements should begin shortly after birth and continue through the time of eruption of the second permanent molars (approx. 12 years of age).
Regular dental check-ups at Comprehensive Dental Care should begin no later than 18 months of age.
