Just released information on fluoride says, treatment as well as help prevent cavities can also prevent illness. Deficiency is especially prevalent in developing countries, here in Mexico dental diseases are a major issue in the field of public health.

A number of international experts have now completed a study that presents a status report on existing knowledge about fluoride and its beneficial effect on dental health.

Fluoride helps:

Reconstitute enamel on the teeth.

Stops bacteria from converting sugar from food stuck between our teeth.

Helps reinforce the teeth in general.

It is therefore essential to ensure that everyone has access to a suitable volume of fluoride.

Unfortunately, not all countries consider its use to be as important. Everyone should have optimal levels of fluoride, from fluoride toothpaste, for example. Public authorities also must regulate and supply a beneficial level of fluoride by adding it directly to drinking water, salt or milk.

Although fluoride in itself won’t prevent all oral health problems, it will surely help diminish them. Limiting the high consumption of sugar and eating calcium rich diet is also an effective form of fighting bacteria in the mouth. As well as not forgetting about the traditional methods of fighting tooth decay which include brushing and flossing the teeth to physically remove bacteria and other residue from the tooth surface.

Bacterial infections that cause tooth decay are actually contagious.  Throught any direct contact. This is why it is especially important to make sure your children get fluoride treatment twice a year. to prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. Regular treatment as a child will also reverse early decay and help incorporate fluoride into the development of permanent teeth, making it difficult for acids to dematerialize the teeth. It will also help rematerialize and disrupts acid production in already erupted teeth of both children and adults.

Treatment is safe and used by dentists and doctors all over the world. Only a small amount is used, and hardly any fluoride is swallowed.fluoride-tooth
