Hello, and welcome to Pro Systems Dentistry. Today’s post focuses on fluoride: “What is it, exactly, and why is it so beneficial to your dental health?”
Fluoride is a mineral, plain and simple. Fluoride occurs naturally in different foods as well as in water. Many communities 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 cavities, of course! Fluoride does this by giving the teeth increased resistance against the acid attacks brought on by plaque bacteria as well as sugar in the mouth.
Fluoride is especially essential for kids. Between the ages of 6 months and 16 years old, both the primary and the permanent teeth come in, therefore fluoride exposure is extremely beneficial for setting the 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 Taylorsville dental offices.
I’m Marketing Specialist Kirk Peery and I have a full-service dental practice in Taylorsville. Helping my dental patients maintain optimal dental health is important for me, and so is helping them achieve the smile they want through cosmetic dentistry procedures such as veneers, teeth whitening and complete smile makeovers.
