Fluoride is a natural mineral that can help your smile in many ways, which is why it’s recommended to expose your teeth to fluoride regularly. To help you understand a little more, our dentist, Dr. J. Kenneth Carver, is happy to tell you about the ways fluoride can help you. Fluoride can:

-Strengthen your smile: The fluoride dives into your tooth enamel and makes it a hard shell that is tough to break. If all of your teeth are strengthened by fluoride, the entire smile can be strong and healthy.

-Help you avoid cavities: Because fluoride makes your teeth tough and resilient, the bacteria in your mouth have a hard time wearing down and damaging the tooth enamel. This means they have a hard time creating tooth decay.

-Help you avoid erosion and tooth cracks: Because fluoride makes the enamel strong and tough, acid has a hard time wearing the enamel away and there is a reduced chance of unnatural pressure fracturing your tooth enamel.
