The Dental Care Center has published a new article entitled ‘Everything You Need To Know About Fluoride,’ which sheds light on one of the most important aspects of dental health. Patients who want to better understand how fluoride helps their teeth and other interested individuals can view the full article at https://www.mycarolinadentist.com/everything-need-know-fluoride/
The article includes several interesting pieces of information, one in particular is that fluoride is in toothpaste and drinking water, but some people may need a little extra dose to keep their teeth happy and healthy. This should be of particular interest to dental patients because fluoride promotes tooth remineralization and helps heal damaged areas on teeth and makes them decay-resistant.
One of the most important pieces of information the article tries to convey and communicate is that 91 percent of adults aged between 20 and 64 have experienced some level of tooth decay and have needed a cavity filled. In fact, studies have shown that 60 percent of adults do not clean their teeth properly. The best example of this is perhaps found in the following extract:
‘From the moment your teeth begin growing as a child, fluoride is helping protect them from plaque and sugar. Fluoride is a natural element, found in foods and water, that mixes with your enamel and makes your teeth much stronger. Even after your teeth are formed, fluoride works with your saliva to protect the enamel on your teeth. Stronger teeth get fewer cavities.’
In discussing fluoride and tooth decay, Dr. Stuart Higgins, practicing partner at The Dental Care Center said:
“Fluoride is added to your public water supply but some may still not get the recommended amount. Adults should be consuming 1 liter of fluoridated water daily and using fluoridated toothpaste. It helps protect your teeth from the acids that eat away at your tooth enamel. Tooth decay is preventable. See your dentist regularly, at least twice a year, and practice proper oral care at home.”
The Dental Care Center now welcomes comments and questions from readers, in relation to the article, as they are intent on providing timely and useful information concerning the importance of good oral hygiene. The reason is simply because it will generate a better understanding of the subject for everyone.
