Fluoride's Important Role in Your Oral Health

Last updated 4 years ago

For several decades, the use of fluoride in water distribution and dental treatment has helped countless individuals avoid the problems of tooth decay. This video explains why fluoride should be an essential component of your oral health regimen.

In the last century, dentists discovered that fluoride could successfully fight off tooth decay. This natural substance fortifies teeth in two ways. First, it strengthens tooth enamel, making it less susceptible to the damage that bacterial acids can cause. Second, it can restore enamel already deteriorated by minor tooth decay. For these reasons, dentists recommend that patients drink fluorinated water and receive fluoride treatment if necessary.
