Details on How Fluoride Can Help Your Smile

Posted .

If you want a top-notch oral health, fluoride can help you. Fluoride is a natural mineral that can be found in toothpaste, mouthwash, tap water, and professional fluoride treatments. It’s best to expose your teeth to fluoride regularly. This is because fluoride can greatly benefit your smile. In fact, it can:

-Strengthen your smile: Fluoride soaks into the tooth enamel and makes it a strong, resilient shell. This increases the chances of having an all-around healthy smile because they shell is tough to destroy.

-Help you avoid cavities: Because the shell is tough to destroy, the bacteria and plaque in your mouth have a hard time creating cavities. This means you can prevent tooth decay if you expose your teeth to fluoride regularly.

-Help you avoid erosion and tooth cracks: Because fluoride makes the enamel strong and tough, acid has a hard time wearing the enamel away and there is a reduced chance of unnatural pressure fracturing your tooth enamel.
