Fluoride is an essential part of dental health and at Dentalville in Los Angeles - we recommend it to all our patients. Fluoride restores calcium for decaying teeth, and limits the effects of corrosive acid. Patients at Dentalville in Los Angeles - , can find out if their community's water supply is fluoridated by checking with their local Dentalville dentist or with the municipal-water-supply-board in Los Angeles - . If your kids only drink un-fluoridated tap water or bottled water, it will be beneficial for you to speak to your pediatrician about fluoride supplements.
Un-fluoridated bottled water in Los Angeles - is usually the contributing factor to the growing problem of tooth decay amongst preschoolers. However, too much fluoride can lead to fluorosis, which causes white spots on the teeth. This is why kids under 2 or 3 years old shouldn't use fluoride toothpaste because they normally swallow instead of spitting it out.
