If you’ve ever paid attention to the messaging on dental products, you’ve likely seen fluoride advertised as an ingredient at some point or another. It’s in nearly everything that you use to care for your teeth, and it’s there because it helps your oral health.
But do you know what fluoride is? And what it can do for your oral health? Since not many people do, we thought it’d help to put together a post that can educate you on this topic.
What is it?
Fluoride is a natural mineral that many dental product manufacturers add to end-user products in order to help prevent tooth decay. Now, since fluoride is a mineral, it can actually speed up the process of your enamel replenishing itself.
Who uses it?
There’s a big chance that most any dentist you’ve visited for a checkup has used fluoride either in your toothpaste, or have had you do a fluoride rinse. This isn’t a preference thing from one dentist to another. They all use it because of how effective it is in aiding your oral health.
Now, everyone – including Dr. Susan Chmiel – has heard the different stories fluoride not being healthy. But they’re just that – stories. Fluoride is an effective, all-natural mineral that has tons of great benefits for your teeth, mouth, and smile.
The entire staff here at Drs. Timothy Ross & Susan Chmiel in Franklin, Wisconsin, uses fluoride personally. In addition to that, all of the products that we recommend for usage contain fluoride.
