Study done at Harvard which shows some potential effects of fluoride ingestion. Fluoride benefits teeth with topical application, not ingestion. If you have small children, I'd recommend avoiding fluoride supplements and make sure they brush twice daily and floss once a day. Regular hygiene and dental visits as well as avoiding sugary snacks is the best way to prevent cavities! I'm glad Honolulu does not add fluoride to it's water supply unless you're on a military base.

Yet another serious health problem which is linked to gum disease. Because of the serious health risks that gum disease is related to, I take treatment of gum disease very seriously. I like a multi pronged attack on periodontitis which may include laser gum therapy, special toothpastes and rinses, better hygiene and teaming up with other health practitioners to make sure the body is working well.

Just a reminder that we should always be careful when considering general anesthesia for our young children.  You can consider nitrous gas, light oral sedation, hypnosis or other techniques before resorting to general anesthesia.
