Fluoride is in just about every last bit of dental product you can buy. And it’s all there for one reason – it does an outstanding job of preventing a lot of oral health problems.

But do you know what fluoride is? And what it can do for your oral health? Not many people do, so let’s take a few minutes today to get a deeper understanding of fluoride.

What is it?
Fluoride is an all-natural product, derived from a mineral, that naturally works to help increase tooth health and stability. Since fluoride is a mineral, it meshes directly with your enamel to help strengthen that important part of your tooth health.

Who uses it?
Go into the office of any dentist in the country, and it’s almost a guarantee that you’ll find it being used. It’s proven to be effective in mitigating tooth decay and improving overall oral health.

Of course, Dr. Mike Choe is aware of the rumors and negative information that exists about fluoride. Some people dismiss its benefits, but dental experts from across the world all agree that fluoride use is a perfectly safe, even necessary, activity for great oral health.
