How can Fluoride help teeth?
What is the benefit of Fluoride?
Fluoride is an important mineral that strengthens your teeth. It protects your tooth structure from dissolving by acid. It helps with sensitivity. It also is proven to promote remineralization, which is a process where the outer layer of the tooth called enamel is restored with minerals.
Where can you find Fluoride?
Fluoride can be found in some tap water, toothpaste, and some dental products like Fluoride varnish.
Don’t forget to get your Fluoride varnish (paint) at your dental cleaning appointment!
Why Prescription Fluoride Toothpaste?
Dental offices carry toothpaste that has prescribed high concentration of fluoride, which is 5000 parts per million, which is about 5 times higher concentration than the over-the-counter toothpaste. The over-the-counter Fluoride toothpaste has fluoride ranging from 1000 to 1500 parts per million.
I believe all adults should have prescription fluoride toothpaste. Our lifestyle and diet these days are constantly attacking our teeth. Think about all the soda, carbs, sugar, wine,coffee...the list goes on and on. Once a tooth is damaged, it does not grow back. Prevention is the key.
Ask your dentist about Prescription Fluoride Toothpaste.
