HOW CAN FLOURIDE
be introduced into the body?
- Fluoridated water
- Toothpastes and mouth rinses
- Lozenges and tablets
- Gels and foams containing Fluoride
Additionally, fluoride is only good for the teeth in very minute, controlled doses. Furthermore, excessive amounts in the body can lead to toxicity, and may manifest on the dentition in the form of Fluorosis, a condition which is characterized by discoloration of the enamel, hypo-mineralization, and in certain cases, visible, physical damage to the teeth.
It is believed, ‘prevention is better than cure’. For more information on how you can make your teeth stronger, less prone to decay, and healthier overall, patients can book an appointment to explore the many benefits of in-office fluoride therapies! Call today to schedule!
