High Fluoride Toothpaste
What is High Flouride Toothpaste?
Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral found in water. In the 1950s scientists discovered that, when it was added to toothpaste, it helped prevent decay. Tooth decay is the erosion of teeth or gums, this is caused by the acid produced by dental plaque bacteria.
These oral bacteria produce higher levels of acidity each time you each sugary food or drink. Eventually, if left untreated, the acid can cause cavities to form in teeth. Using fluoride toothpaste is proven to be one of the best ways to reduce acidity. Major toothpaste brands now include sodium fluoride in all their toothpastes. However, your dentist may recommend and prescribe a higher strength of fluoride toothpaste for you if you’re at a high risk of tooth decay.
