Fluoride is a mineral that is naturally found in varying amounts within your bones, teeth, and even food and water. It is the most effective operative in known to help prevent tooth decay. Fluoride alone is not enough to prevent tooth decay, but when partnered with regular brushing, flossing, and good oral hygiene, it is almost unstoppable!

How does fluoride work?
Fluoride works in two different ways. Topical and systemic fluoride both strengthen teeth, but systemic fluoride also fortifies teeth that have not yet erupted from gums. For this reason, dentists encourage children to have a professional application of fluoride each time they visit for check-ups during the year.
Topical fluoride comes from dental products like toothpaste and mouthwash while systemic fluoride is sourced from food and water supplies in our community. You can also take systemic fluoride as a supplement with a prescription from your dentist or health professional.
