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 used in the majority of dental products, because of the great benefits it has on your oral health.

But do you know what fluoride is? And what it can do for your oral health? Not many people do, so let’s take a few minutes today to get a deeper understanding of fluoride.

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. Since fluoride is a mineral, it meshes directly with your enamel to help strengthen that important part of your tooth health.

Who uses it?
There’s a big chance that most any dentist you’ve visited for a check up has used fluoride either in your toothpaste, or have had you do a fluoride rinse. It’s proven to be effective in mitigating tooth decay and improving overall oral health.

Now, Dr. Chiru is aware that some rumors about fluoride exist. Some people dismiss its benefits, but dental experts from across the world all agree that fluoride use is a perfectly safe, even necessary, activity for great oral health.

The entire staff here at Complete Dental of Atlanta in Tucker, Georgia, uses fluoride personally. In addition to that, all of our products that we recommend for usage contain fluoride.
