Benefits of Fluoride in Tooth Products

Over the years and with research and development, dental sciences have shown a significant improvement. Newer and advanced products help improve the dental health as well as contribute towards the wellness of your oral hygiene. Fluoride is one such product that is increasingly used in dental products and dental treatments.

Benefits of Fluoride

Dentist’s today advice on fluoride based tooth products that strengthen the teeth as well as keep the gums healthy. It has been said that fluoride enriched products reduce caries and also makes the teeth stronger and more resilient to bacterial attacks. This, along with regular and periodical checkups has helped improve the dental health in leaps and bounds.

How is Fluoride Helpful?

Fluoride protects the teeth from demineralization and strengthens the enamel. Regular use of fluoride rich products and once in a while dental treatment with fluoride helps keep them healthy. Dentists these days also recommend that children should use fluoride based toothpastes right from when they begin to brush their teeth. For children who are almost addicted to sweets and gummy stuff, it helps to keep the bacteria at bay and protects the teeth from the plaque caused by sugary substances that they consume on a daily basis. Also, kids are mostly distracted and do not spend much time on brushing or flossing. Fluoride based products help to supplement their little efforts and makes up for the misplaced care.

Diet which is rich in starch also is the cause of demineralization. The possibility of acid formation is higher and this can affect the teeth in more ways than one. While one needs to be conscious of one’s diet, it is also essential to regularly brush your teeth with fluoride as the main ingredient, and floss your teeth after every major meal. This should be a habit and should be inculcated in the children as well. A little care ensures healthy teeth and gums for years to come.
