Fluoride prevents dental decay. Fluoride makes up a third of the natural minerals found in the crown of a tooth. Eating and drinking causes mineral loss in teeth. We can also lose minerals from the acids that build up in our mouth through bacteria. Toothpaste with fluoride helps to remineralise your teeth and help prevent tooth decay.
Do you have a sweet tooth?
Acidic sweetened beverages and refined sugars lead to tooth decay, you should be using fluoride to protect your teeth. Fluoride not only remineralizes your teeth but is also antibacterial, it helps to reduce a particular bacteria that causes tooth decay.
Much research has been done on remineralisation using flouride and the different modes of delivery through different products. You can find it in toothpaste, mouthwashes, water, and dental varnishes. Speak to your dentist professional about what fluoride can do for you.
