Does my child need supplemental fluoride?

Fluoride is a mineral that occurs naturally in all water sources, including the ocean, lakes, and some underground wells. Breast milk is typically acknowledged as the most complete form of infant nutrition, but if you are formula feeding, check with your dentist to see whether tap water or filtered water (without fluoride) is the most appropriate water to reconstitute infant formula in your area.

Dietary fluoride supplements are available only by prescription and are intended for children only in areas where optimal fluoride levels are not present in the drinking water.
