Understanding Fluoride for Your Toddler

Understanding fluoride for your toddler

The most effective way to protect teeth and fight against cavities and decay is to use fluoride. When combined with the enamel on your teeth, fluoride strengthens the teeth and provides an extra layer of protection.

 Where To Find Fluoride:

  • Fluoride based toothpaste
  • Fluoride Varnish or Gel which can be applied at the dentist’s office
  • Drinking Water (Some community water supplies use fluoridated water. Call your health department or water utility service to find out. Also, check bottled water labels to see if it contains fluoride)
  • Fluoride Supplements (These may be prescribed by your dentist or doctor and typically come in the form of drops or tablets)


While fluoride provides many benefits and is essential for proper oral health, using too much fluoride can lead to fluorosis. This is a condition which can cause defects on tooth enamel such as discoloration. More commonly, fluorosis impacts permanent teeth, but is still something to be aware of with your child’s baby teeth.
