FAQ

Fluoride is Key in Prevention of Tooth Decay

Fluoride, in proper dosage, has been shown to significantly reduce dental decay. But some municipal sources and most bottled water don’t have enough fluoride. So what’s a cavity-conscious person to do? Consult Dr. Jay Rifkind in Greenwood about fluoride supplements that can help provide you with the recommended amount of this vital mineral.

Kids are especially prone to decay when fluoride is missing from their diet. Dr. Rifkind can help you determine whether your child may need supplements and when they should begin. Typically, if fluoride is needed, supplements begin shortly after birth and continue through about 12 years of age, when the second permanent molars have erupted.

To ensure your family is on the right track with fluoride in the Greenwood area, make sure your children begin seeing Dr. Rifkind no later than 18 months of age.

If you have any questions about fluoride or want to make an appointment with Dr. Rifkind, call Jay Rifkind DDS PC today at (888)285-0218.
