Fluoride prevents tooth decay, according to the American Academy for pediatric Dentistry (AAPD). Most children drink fluoridated water from municipal supplies, but if water isn't fluoridated, the child needs a supplement. Fluoridated toothpaste alone does not provide enough fluoride.

Most dentists agree that mouthwash or a fluoride rinse is not really necessary for children, especially because of the risk that they may swallow the product. This is a concern especially if the mouthwash contains alcohol.
