Americans have been adding fluoride to their public sources of drinking water from as early as 1945, and over the years, millions of us have enjoyed the health benefits of this extra mineral. However, as more families are moving toward bottled water and tap-filtering systems, they may be losing that source of tooth decay prevention.
If you buy bottled water for your family, check the labels to see if your water contains fluoride. Likewise, check your tap filter for the same information. If your filtered or bottled water has been stripped of fluoride, it becomes more important to find an alternate source.
Because fluoride is so important to a child’s dental health from the earliest years, we want to make sure this need is met. Ask us about fluoride supplements for your kids if you have any questions or concerns, and we’ll work together to give them the best possible nutritional supplements.
