Does your child need Fluoride Varnish?
This is a FREE dental program to help prevent tooth decay (cavities). Fluoride Varnish helps strengthen the outer surface of teeth. If your child already has tooth decay, Fluoride Varnish can help stop or slow down the progression of the decay until your child is able to have treatment in a dental office or until the first teeth naturally fall out.
Your child should have Fluoride Varnish applied if...
- you or your other children have had cavities in the past 12 months, or
- your child sleeps with a bottle with anything other than water in it, or
- your child's teeth are not cleaned daily with a fluoride toothpaste, or
- your child's teeth look like any of the teeth in the 3 photos below.
Please contact us if you would like your child to have Fluoride Varnish.
If you have a family dentist, please check with them as they may want to provide fluoride applications for your child in their office.
