Just made my 3-year-old's first dental appointment. It includes a cleaning, exam, oral hygiene tips, and fluoride treatment.
I asked the receptionist what "fluoride treatment" entailed because I was thinking a semi-permanent sealant, but she said "it's just a little fluoride the dentist brushes on the back teeth, kind of like a vitamin, and usually lasts about six months."
FTR, he is still breastfeeding, is vax-free, and a super-healthy kid -- we eat mostly organic, etc. I worry because we generally use fluoride-free toothpaste with him, so is the fluoride-treatment a really dumb idea?
