THE IMPORTANCE OF FLUORIDE IN PREVENTING CAVITIES
If you want to keep your teeth strong and healthy, it helps to approach dental hygiene from many different angles. While most people know that they should brush their teeth twice each day, not everyone is aware of the benefits of fluoride.
Not all toothpastes are the same, and some may be vastly more effective than others. Be sure to choose a tube of toothpaste that contains fluoride and the ADA seal of approval. Fluoride can bolster the strength of your teeth and in doing so prevent cavities. It is especially important to use fluoride toothpaste if you tend to enjoy sweets, candies, and other carbohydrates because they can produce acids that deteriorate your enamel. Fluoride toothpaste will work with your saliva to keep your teeth strong and healthy for years. Watch this video clip for a preview of the importance of fluoride in preventing cavities.
