Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride is very beneficial to teeth. However, too much or too little can have negative affects to the teeth. Excessive fluoride ingestion by pre-school children can lead to fluorosis, which is a chalky white or brown discoloration of the permanent teeth. Little or no fluoride will not strengthen the teeth to help resist cavities.
