Fluoride and Children

You only give water to your child that you know is safe, right? Usually this means it is bottled and not from the tap. However, this “designer” water may not have any fluoride at all, which can lead to tooth decay. Too little fluoride can cause teeth to be more susceptible to cavities. Dr. McCargar says he sees a lot of cavities in children and parents don’t understand how this can happen when the child takes great care of his or her teeth and gums. But, it can happen and it does happen frequently. Most tap water is fluorinated and most bottled water is not. Double check which water your child is drinking. It may just make your child’s next dental visit much more enjoyable.
