Fluoride Supplement

A naturally occuring element like fluoride is capable to strengthen your teeth. At South Dental Associates, our dentists recommend several sources of fluoride to prevent the problem of tooth decay. Water is a natural source of fluoride. Food stuffs like fish, meat and egg contain fluoride in them.
