Numerous studies have demonstrated that fluoride, will effectively strengthen and remineralize your tooth enamel. The acids that are formed by bacteria in your mouth can cause tooth decay. With the help of fluoride and fluoride-based products, your tooth enamel will be much stronger.
Because fluoride can remineralize and strengthen our tooth enamel, it is added to toothpaste and has even been added to some public water supplies. There are also fluoride supplements in the form of lozenges, tablets, pills, and drops.
Consult your dentist to learn which treatment will work best for you. Your dentist can suggest which toothpastes will give your teeth the care they need. Furthermore, you should always look for toothpaste that features the ADA Seal of Acceptance from the American Dental Association which indicates that the product meets the Association’s standards for safety and effectiveness.
