Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that prevents tooth decay and helps build stronger teeth. Smile Studio Kids is proud to offer fluoride treatments and other pediatric dental services to residents of Fairburn, Atlanta, and the nearby areas of Georgia.
What is Fluoride Treatment?
Fluoride treatments have been protecting and strengthening teeth for decades. Fluoridated water has been called one of the most significant health achievements of the 20the century, but not every child gets enough fluoride. This is one reason that a topical fluoride supplement applied in the dental office may be recommended for your child.
Fluoride is a natural mineral that, when applied to the teeth, helps prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. It can also reverse early tooth decay. In children under 6 years of age, fluoride becomes incorporated into the development of permanent teeth, making it difficult for acids to demineralize the teeth.

- Helps support and strengthen tooth enamel
