Benefits of Fluoride
Fluoride has long been an item added to drinking water and toothpaste in order to help people benefit from the fact that this mineral helps strengthen tooth’s enamel and can help block acids from breaking through the teeth. With the increase in popularity of bottled spring water and water filtration systems for the home, many people no longer ingest fluoride.
Some express concerns about fluoride toxicity. In high volumes this can be a concern. Fluoride toothpaste and rinses should not be ingested but fluoride has been proven as a safe protocol when used by a dentist.
While fluoride does likely exist in your toothpaste and may even be present in your drinking water, talk to Dr. Hutto today to find out if you would benefit from additional fluoride products either in the office or in the form of fluoride rinses that you can take home.
