Numerous studies have shown that fluoride, as it occurs in nature, can indeed effectively strengthen and remineralize your tooth enamel. When harmful acids that are created by bacteria in your mouth are allowed to run rampant, serious tooth decay can occur. With the help of fluoride and fluoride-based products, your tooth enamel will be much stronger and better protected. In addition:
– Fluoride occurs naturally in the world, including most bodies of water, and can naturally help prevent tooth decay and gum disease. In many local water supplies, fluoride is added for our own protection.
– When looking for fluoride-containing oral health care products such as toothpaste, look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance. If you are unsure which fluoride products are right for you, contact your dentist. Fluoride can also be taken as a supplement in tablet form or as a lozenge.
– For a professional fluoride application, schedule a visit with your dentist at Wright Smile Center of Woodbridge.
