In addition to fluoride being found in most kinds of toothpaste and in the California water supply, another method for making sure you and your child have a healthy dose of fluoride is to have it applied directly to your teeth.

How does fluoride protect my teeth?
As it coats your teeth, fluoride forms a protective shield against attacks from acids, which are common in carbohydrates, sweets, pastas, and other foods. Without the fluoride, the acid would gradually strip away your tooth’s enamel.
