Fluoride is a valuable mineral for your oral health. It’s often added to teeth cleaning products we use, as well as the public water supply. Although fluoride can be harmful to very young children in large doses, copious amounts of research confirm that it is safe for human consumption at low levels.
Fluoride both fortifies and rebuilds your tooth enamel to assure that the effects of plaque and harmful acids on your teeth are minimized. If you would appreciate a fluoride treatment, check your toothpaste and mouthwash to make sure it has been added.
For further protection, visit your dentist at our office for a professional cleaning complete with a fluoride application. Fluoride is also available in supplement form – as drops, lozenges, and tablets. To know that the products you use are considered safe and effective, you’ll want to look for the American Dental Association’s Seal of Acceptance on product labels.
