Hendersonville Dentist Discusses Fluoride

Fluoride-Why You Need It

Fluoride is another hot topic in the news. There are claims and concerns across the internet about Fluoride and potential health issues including certain types of cancer, autism and attention deficit disorder. Most cases studies have not conclusively identified a clear correlation between fluoride and these health issues.

We recommend the supervised use of fluoride toothpaste for children ages t and older and adult patients, at safe and recommended levels. Fluoride treatment for children is a standard practice at Hendersonville Family Dentistry. However, our doctors and staff are more than happy to omit fluoride treatment if requested by the parent or guardian.

Home Oral Health Care

Home oral health care routines  that include flossing, and brushing for two minutes, twice per day in combination with regular professional dental cleanings, are the best way to prevent cavities in both adults and children .Regardless the type of toothpaste you choose, children should always be closely monitored and supervised, the proper amount of toothpaste should be used.
