Fluoride (FLOOR-eyed) is a mineral that is found in all natural sources of water even the ocean. Fluoride helps protect tooth enamel from the acid attacks that cause tooth decay. It also helps repair weakened enamel before cavities form. Children who drink tap water that has the recommended level of fluoride are less likely to get cavities than children who do not drink fluoridated water. Children get added protection from fluoride by getting it from more than one source. Another source of fluoride, besides tap water, is fluoride toothpaste. Fluoride toothpaste is safe, even for young children, as long as they use the recommended amount of toothpaste and spit it out when they are done brushing. Children under three years old should use no more than a grain-of-rice sized amount of fluoride toothpaste. Children aged three to six should use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste. Fluoride mouth rinses are not recommended for children under six. Sucking habits Many infants and young children like to suck on thumbs, fingers and pacifiers. Sucking is a natural reflex and necessary for feeding. However, long- term sucking habits can cause problems. Their teeth may not grow in straight and their mouth may not develop correctly. Sucking habits usually stop between the ages of 2 and 4. If your child uses a pacifier or sucks their fingers, talk to your dentist about how to get your child off this habit. If the sucking continues, ask your child’s dentist or pediatrician about other ways to discourage sucking. Thumb (left) and pacifier sucking (right) habits can cause problems as your child’s teeth and mouth develop, like crooked teeth and changes to the shape of their face and mouth.
