Understanding the importance of fluoride

Schaan – 26th August 2015

Teeth are major factors in the physical, social and emotional development of children. Fluoride plays an essential role in maintaining the good health of children’s teeth. A new patient guidebook reveals the details.

It is important to establish a thorough oral hygiene routine, from as early as the appearance of the first deciduous tooth. Fluoride is generally recognized among experts to play an important role in the prevention of caries. Nonetheless, the necessity of applying fluoride in order to prevent caries continues to be the subject of some discussion.

A new information brochure from Ivoclar Vivadent helps to teach patients, and parents in particular, about the importance of proper dental hygiene measures including fluoride products. The readers will learn why it is important to care for deciduous teeth, what can be damaging to teeth and which measures help to protect them. The brochure clearly explains what fluoride is and which part it plays in keeping teeth healthy.

Dental practices may order the new guidebook free of charge. With each package of 20, a handy stand-up display is provided without any additional charge. Orders can be placed by e-mail: info@ivoclarvivadent.com.
