You’ve probably heard your dentist talk about the importance of fluoride, but how does it work to keep your teeth strong? Fluoride plays a crucial role in remineralizing your teeth. Every day, acids and sugars in your mouth eat away at your tooth enamel, robbing it of essential minerals. Fluoride, along with calcium and phosphates, helps to re-strengthen that enamel to prevent tooth decay. Fluoride is so crucial to dental health that the CDC named the addition of fluoride to drinking water as one of the top 10 public health achievements of all time. This infographic, brought to you by our Chantilly dentists, explains how fluoride is beneficial and why your dentist may recommend extra fluoride for improved dental health.
