How Does Fluoride Work?

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can remarkably strengthen tooth enamel and prevent decay. Here’s why it’s essential for good oral health:

  • Fortifies Tooth Enamel  
    Fluoride strengthens tooth enamel, the protective layer on teeth. It helps prevent cavities by increasing enamel’s resistance to acid attacks from plaque and sugars. It also protects the structural integrity of bright white teeth.
  • Prevents Tooth Decay   
    Fluoride plays a crucial role in preventing tooth decay. Its functions include inhibiting demineralization,  promoting remineralization of weak enamel, effectively halting decay in its tracks and reversing early-stage damage.  
    Fluoride’s preventive action can spare you from undergoing more invasive dental procedures, providing you with a sense of security about your oral health.
  • Safe and Effective: 
    Fluoride is a proven and safe method to prevent cavities,   backed by extensive research and endorsed by dental professionals worldwide.  

    It’s important to note that when used as instructed, fluoride offers unparalleled protection without compromising overall health. The amount of fluoride used in dental treatments is carefully regulated to ensure safety, making it a reliable and trusted choice for maintaining optimal dental health.

Types Of Fluoride

Fluoride is available in various forms for dental care, each with its unique benefits.
These include: 

  • Topical Fluoride
    Tropical fluoride is applied directly to teeth through toothpaste, mouthwash, or professional treatments like fluoride varnish/gel. Concentrated fluoride on the tooth surface strengthens tooth enamel and prevents cavities.   
  • Systemic Fluoride  
    Fluoride is ingested through various sources, including fluoridated water, supplements, and diet. Once ingested, it is incorporated into the tooth structure as it grows, a process known as fluoridation. This makes the tooth more resistant to decay. 

    Drinking fluoridated water is one of the most effective ways to get systemic fluoride, providing a continuous supply of fluoride to the developing teeth. 

Which type of fluoride is best ?

This depends on various factors, including age, oral health status, and personal preference. 

Topical fluoride, applied directly to the teeth through toothpaste, mouthwash, or professional treatments, strengthens tooth enamel and prevents cavities. 

Systemic fluoride, on the other hand, is ingested through various sources, including diet, fluoridated water, and supplements. As this type of fluoride is incorporated into teeth over the years, it strengthens them,  making them more decay-resistant. 

Both types of fluoride have advantages and are frequently used in combination to provide comprehensive tooth decay protection. 

We strongly recommend consulting with our team of expert dentists at Millennial Dental, who can provide expert guidance and support in determining the best fluoride regimen for you.
