Fluoride – The Natural Cavity Fighter!

 In News

When it comes to our oral health, we have all worried about getting a cavity. Over the past few years, the issue has been reduced dramatically. The reason for this? Fluoride!

Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in all water sources. Research has shown it helps to reduce cavities for both children and adults. It can also help to repair early stages of tooth decay, even before they are visible!

Fluoride can be obtained in two forms. Either from topical fluorides (toothpastes, mouthwashes etc.) or systemic which are ingested (tablets, drops, lozenges). The maximum results are accomplished from both systemic and topical forms together. Fortunately, water fluoridation does both!

Community water fluoridation is an efficient and cost effective way to get the necessary fluoride for the best prevention of tooth decay. This is done by adding the right amount of fluoride to a community’s drinking water supply.

If needed, your dentist can subscribe an appropriate dosage of fluoride. Contact Southwood Dental Studio to discuss your fluoride needs and the best way to take of your oral health!
