The American Dental Association recommends fluoride treatment for children until 14. However, these days, new products in the market also allow adults to undergo treatment to prevent new caries and stop the progression of existing decay.
A child should receive its first treatment no later than 12 months.
A child can undergo fluoride therapy not more than 4 times a year. ADA recommends fluoride therapy every 3 months.
The child should not eat anything for at least half an hour to one hour.
Avoid hot, hard, and sticky foods and products that contain alcohol.
