9.5.3 Fluoride

Fluoride supplements should only be used after consultation with a dentist. Most children will not benefit from supplements provided fluoride toothpaste is used daily.

Some children with medical conditions (e.g. heart defects) or a family history of tooth decay may benefit from fluoride supplements. This should be discussed with the child’s dentist who can prescribe fluoride supplements on FP10D if needed.

Included for use by the Acute Trust dentists.
