Fluoride varnish is one part of a comprehensive approach to a child's oral health. Fluoride varnish is recommended in the primary care setting every 3–6 months starting at tooth emergence for all children. One out of 10 two-year-olds already has one or more cavities. By age three, 28% of children have one or more cavities. By age five, nearly 50% of children have one or more cavities. Oral health is essential for overall health at any age.
