Fluoride is a natural mineral that hardens and protects teeth by neutralizing the acid that causes decay. Dental treatments with fluoride can help prevent tooth decay and even help your teeth rebuild areas of decay in both children and adults. Some adult and adolescent patients with either very sensitive teeth or a large amount of decay can benefit from home fluoride gels and tablets prescribed by the dentist. To find out if you and your family are getting enough fluoride speak to the dentist or hygienist. The use of fluoride along with brushing, flossing, regular dental checkups and a diet low in sugars should result in strong, healthy teeth.
