Why should I use fluoride?
Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay in a few ways.  First, it promotes tooth remineralization, which can reverse the early stages of tooth decay.  Second, it helps teeth become more resistant to tooth decay, giving them natural protection from it by strengthening them.  Finally, it inhibits oral bacteria’s ability to create tooth-attacking acids by disrupting bacteria’s ability to metabolize sugars, which is the process that leads to the attack of tooth enamel.
