Although fluoride may get a bad rap due to its toxicity at very high levels, when taken in the recommended amounts, it can be extremely beneficial for one’s tooth enamel and oral health care. The benefits of fluoride include the following:
– Fluoride is often related to tooth enamel protection, and the mineral can easily be located all around the world including bodies of water.
– Fluoride is added to many types of toothpastes, mouthwashes, and oral health care supplements.
– Due to fluoride’s capability to protect the tooth enamel that surrounds your teeth, it can be found in a variety of oral health care treatments as well as in the public drinking water supply.
– If you want additional fluoride help, supplements can be found online and in local stores. They can be procured in a wide variety of supplements, including tablets, drops lozenges, and pills.
When finding the right fluoride product for you, look for the ADA Seal of Acceptance given out by the American Dental Association. This ensures the product has met the standards for optimum safety and effectiveness.
