Some pediatric dentists in the Port Charlotte area are advising Florida parents to have their child use an oral rinse that contains fluoride. This has caused some parents to wonder if the use of an oral rinse is helpful for tooth decay prevention even if the child is taking a fluoride supplement.
The answer to that, according to my Port Charlotte children’s dentist, is ‘Yes’. Why?
Fluoride supplements (usually only recommended if the municipal water is not fluoridated) help the teeth that are still forming in the jaw. Oral rinses, however, protect the teeth that have already come in. Fluoride supplements combined with an oral rinse strengthen all teeth: both baby and adult teeth.
OTC fluoride rinses (like ACT) can aid in children’s tooth decay prevention in Port Charlotte. Port Charlotte dentists recommend kids swish the rinse around in their mouth after they brush and floss. The solution should be the last thing to touch their teeth before going to bed.
