What’s the deal with fluoride?
Fluoride exists naturally in water sources and is derived from fluorine, helping prevent or reverse early stages of tooth decay. Both the bacteria in the plaque on your teeth and sugar break down the enamel on your teeth, which could lead to some harmful damage. Minerals like fluoride help prevent damage being done to your teeth, keeping them looking and feeling good.Fluoride combats tooth decay in two ways:
- Strengthens tooth enamel acting as a shield for teeth
- Allows teeth to repair, or remineralize, themselves
