FLUOR-A-DAY CHEWABLE TABLETS (SODIUM FLUORIDE/XYLITOL)

FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets Description

FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets is a supplement for children that live in communities that do not fluoridate the drinking water as dental cavity prevention is so important as their first teeth erupt. Each country may be different as to how much fluoridation is provided in their drinking water, so find out if your water supply contains less than 0.6 ppm (parts per million) and ask your doctor or dentist if it is beneficial for your child to receive FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets.

Improve Dental Hygiene to Prevent Poor Oral Health

The active ingredient in FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets is Sodium Fluoride/Xylitol. Sodium Fluoride is the most common form of fluoride found in toothpaste and mouth rinses. Natural Sodium Fluoride is found in your oceans so most seafood in your diet will contain fluoride but many of us do not consume enough Sodium Fluoride in the food we eat.

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that resembles sugar but is not converted in your mouth to acids so the bacteria, Streptococcus mutans, are unable to use Xylitol to grow. This action inhibits bacterial growth so fewer bacteria are able to survive on the surface of your child’s teeth. Proper dental hygiene is essential for children as their baby teeth come and go and adult teeth appear.

Conditions Treated by FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets

Cavities are caused by not brushing enough, or not brushing properly after eating or drinking sugary drinks. The bacteria in your mouth eat the simple sugars which are converted into acid plaque. The bacteria-caused acid plaque causes enamel demineralization and develops into a good place for bacteria to grow. Acid plaque is different from the plaque that causes gum disease.

Before FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets is Prescribed

FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets are ideal for younger children until they are able to brush their teeth effectively. Ask your doctor which dosage is best for your child. Discuss any medical or dental concerns with your doctor and list any OTC or Rx drugs your child takes, including herbal remedies and dietary, vitamin, or mineral supplements.

FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets Proper Use

You should not give your children FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets until you talk to your doctor. You have to find out if your tap water is fluoridated, and if so, how many parts per million. If you overdo the fluoride intake, you could cause damage to your child’s teeth if you are giving or taking above the optimal amount. Small white specks may appear on the teeth and although it is not necessarily dangerous, it can change the appearance of the teeth.

FLUOR-A-DAY Chewable Tablets are meant to be chewed slowly after your child/children have brushed their teeth. For children between 6 months and 6 years of age, you can add FLUOR-A-DAY Drops to their juice or formula to protect their teeth before and after they have erupted to keep them protected from cavities. Store all medicinal products out of children’s reach and away from pets. Xylitol is toxic to dogs!
