What Can Fluoride Do For You?

Hello, and welcome to Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS. Today’s post focuses on fluoride: ‘What is it, exactly, and why is it so beneficial to your dental health?’

The Miracle Mineral

Fluoride is a mineral, plain and simple. Fluoride occurs naturally in different foods as well as in water. Many adjust the fluoride content of their municipal water. Fluoride is also added to oral care products. This makes it possible for you to apply fluoride to your teeth when you brush your teeth or use mouth rinses.

And why would you want to put fluoride on your teeth? Because it will help to prevent tooth decay, of course! Fluoride does this by giving the teeth stronger resistance against the acid attacks brought on by plaque bacteria as well as sugar in the mouth.

Essential for Young Teeth

Fluoride is especially essential for little ones. Between the ages of 6 months and 16 years old, both the primary and the permanent teeth come in, therefore fluoride exposure is extremely helpful for creating a foundation for lifelong oral health.

But, stay tuned, adults: the enamel-strengthening benefits of topical fluoride are available to you as well! In addition to the oral care products mentioned previously, adults can get a boost of this miracle mineral during routine dental cleanings at Dental Care Today PC – E. Dale Behner DDS.
