Tooth Tip Tuesday [SPONSORED]

A local children’s dentist has some advice for you in regard to your kids’ teeth.

Doctor Safari at Atlantic Pediatric Dentistry in Little Silver says you should use enough – but not too much – flouride.

The single biggest advance in oral health has been flouride, which strengthens enamel, making it less likely to decay. Three out of four people drink water that is fluoridated. If your water isn’t flouridated, talk to your dentist , who may suggest putting a flouride application on your teeth.

Many toothpastes and mouth rinses also contain flouride. Flouride should be used sparingly in young children — no more than a pea-sized dab on the toothbrush.

Too much flouride can cause white spots on teeth.
