A Friendly & Relaxing Atmosphere for Children to Develop Healthy Habits
Tooth decay is a massive and all-too-common problem in both children and adults alike. However, young children have a number of different treatments and tools available to them, including regular fluoride treatments as a part of their cleaning regimen. Fluoride is a compound that strengthens teeth and makes them resistant to decay, and can even repair existing decay. Today, our drinking water may even contain trace amounts of fluoride due to its extremely beneficial tendencies, a program that has been named one of the top public health achievements of the 20th century.

Is Fluoride Safe?
You may have heard rumors that fluoride treatments can have detrimental health effects on your child, including inhibiting mental development and delaying behavioral growth. The truth of the matter is these studies have been far from conclusive and the results have been questionable at best. The truth is there are far more studies that show just how immensely effective regular fluoride treatments can be at preventing tooth decay and encouraging strong dental health for your entire life.
Furthermore, some people claim fluoride is nothing but an industrial waste product, but the truth is fluoride is a completely natural substance found at some level in all water sources, even those nowhere near any industrial areas. It is one facet of an overall plan for health and oral hygiene.
