Fluoride Fights Tooth Decay

Posted .

New evidence shows how the fluoride in toothpastes, mouthrinses and even in drinking water prevents tooth decay. Fluoride helps to harden the enamel coating that protects the teeth. A new study now shows that it can actually reduce the ability of decay causing bacteria from sticking to teeth, making it easier to wash away the bacteria by brushing and other oral care activities. This can significantly reduce your risk for gum disease.
