Did you know that fluoride can protect your tooth enamel? Although fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral in our world, its oral health benefits are well noted so it is often inserted into many teeth cleaning products we use, as well as the public water supply. Although fluoride can be harmful to very young children in large doses, it is considered safe for human consumption at low levels.
Fluoride works by protecting and re-mineralizing your tooth enamel to ensure the effects of plaque and harmful acids on your teeth are minimized. If you are interested in a fluoride treatment, check your toothpaste and mouthwash to ensure it has been added for additional protection.
For additional protection, visit your dentist at our office for a professional cleaning complete with a fluoride application. With fluoride, you can be sure your teeth will be safer from tooth decay and cavities. Fluoride is also available in supplement form, including as drops, lozenges, and tablets. To ensure the products you use are considered safe and effective, look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance on product labels.
