Posted on by Crystal in Kids | Leave a comment


Even though most parents understand that using fluoride is crucial for keeping their children’s teeth healthy and cavity-free, there is a lot of misunderstanding when it comes to how much of this crucial mineral should be used when it comes to little ones’ daily oral hygiene routine.
