Why is fluoride friendly for your teeth? Fluoride is known as nature's cavity fighter because it is a naturally occurring mineral that can strengthen and protect tooth enamel. Tooth enamel is the thin layer on the exterior of your teeth the protects your teeth from damage caused by bacteria and harmful acids that can cause infection, erosion, and decay. For more information, listed below is some key information regarding fluoride:
– If you would like a professional treatment with fluoride, they can be administered by your dentist at the office.
– Fluoride can be located in naturally-occurring water all over the world and it has been added to the public drinking water supply to provide an additional layer of protection for your teeth.
