Is Topical Fluoride Good For Your Teeth

Posted on 8/22/2022 by Nancy Shiba DDS
Minerals are essential for a healthy body and oral health. Fluoride is a crucial mineral for the development of strong teeth. Its uptake is key in enhancing quality oral health conditions supporting the growth of healthy teeth, and reducing bacteria in the mouth. The article articulates the role of fluoride in the teeth and how to apply it. Fluoride Tooth enamel is the outer protective layer of the teeth. It's the strongest bone in the body and is highly reliant on fluoride for development. It helps prevent tooth cavities. Teeth cavities or decay entail the erosion of teeth's enamel due to the buildup of plaque and tartar. The plaque and tartar are the accumulated bacteria and foods around the teeth and mouth. The bacteria decay the teeth to the possibility of affecting teeth root and gum infections. The resultant effect leads to painful instances and an unconducive environment for normal routine activities. Fluoride is used to restore minerals eroded by bacteria after brushing. It also prevents the accumulation of bacteria in the mouth. Fluoride also stops the development of decay by making the tooth enamels stronger. It is imperative to children that the earlier they get fluoride, the fewer cavities are. Fluoride is mainly found in fluoride toothpaste as well as tap water. Effects of Fluoride Like any medication, too much of it can be detrimental to your health. The same applies to fluoride intake. Some high doses of fluoride could lead to adverse effects such as developing white specks. The mouth may start developing stains and pits. Bone development and homeostasis are also affected. Expert advice We are expected to keep fluoride levels constant to maintain a healthy oral environment. We advise you to check with our dentists for more advice.
