Vitamins and Fluoride (Systemic)

Description and Brand Names | Before Using | Proper Use | Precautions | Side Effects

  • Vitamin replenisher-dental caries prophylactic - Vitamins and Fluoride

This medicine is a combination of vitamins and fluoride. Vitamins are used when the daily diet does not include enough of the vitamins needed for good health.

Fluoride has been found to be helpful in reducing the number of cavities in the teeth. It is usually present naturally in drinking water. However, some areas of the country do not have a high enough level of fluoride in the water. To make up for this, extra fluorides may be added to the diet. Some children may require both dietary fluorides and fluoride treatments by the dentist. Use of a fluoride toothpaste or rinse may be helpful, as well.

Taking fluorides does not replace good dental habits. These include eating a good diet, brushing and flossing teeth frequently, and having regular dental checkups.

This medicine is available only with your medical doctor's or dentist's prescription, in the following dosage forms:

  • Oral solution (U.S. and Canada)
  • Chewable Tablets (U.S. and Canada)
