Why You Need to Make Sure You Get Plenty of Fluoride
Posted on 3/15/2018 by Posh Dental
Fluoride is incredibly important when it comes to keeping your teeth healthy. It is vital in protecting your teeth from cavities.
Studies found that it helps to protect your teeth decades ago, which is why today there are so many products with fluoride added.
This includes things like toothpaste and mouthwash, and even water with added fluoride. You can also come in and get a fluoride treatment to help boost the amount of fluoride your teeth get. That way, you can have the peace of mind knowing you are getting enough to protect your teeth.
What Fluoride Does to Protect Your Teeth
Fluoride protects your teeth. It forms a bond between the fluoride and enamel to help protect your teeth from attacks from acids in your mouth. This helps to keep tooth decay from happening, plus it also can reverse some bits of very early forms of tooth decay.
Each day, your teeth go through a process where they lose a bit of minerals to these acids, plus simply using your teeth. The process also puts back new minerals to help protect the teeth. If you get enough fluoride, then this is one of the minerals that gets put back into your teeth, which is a very good thing for your teeth.
