Teeth Care

Fluorine is useful for teeth care? Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that is very beneficial for the maintenance of the dentition. In fact it strengthens teeth and increases the resistance of the enamel outer coating against attacks from acids and bacterial plaque (which in the long run can generate pathology associated to dental Periodontics). It also helps repair teeth during the early stages of tooth decay, before cavities forming. Scientific research has shown that brushing teeth with toothpaste that contains fluoride reduces the risk of tooth decay by 22%, and in areas where fluoride is added to water supply, reduces caries by 30% approximately. In general the use of fluorine is beneficial for people of all ages by empowering function of teeth, but the fluoride strengthens the enamel even before the teeth erupt, implying your need before teeth appear in the mouth and above all is very important in children up to 16 years of age.

In fact, the Organization World Health (W.H.O.), recommended its addition to drinking water, and use toothpaste that contains fluoride. The use of fluorine in its different presentations, repair the damaged teeth preventing the formation of cavities in an effective manner. Avoids us the pain of cavities, pain of gums, dental or sensitivity of most advanced pathologies toward which evolves the decay that is not properly (even talk about loss of teeth, that can only be solved through the dental implantology) fluorine that the dentist applies may be in the form of solutions (liquids), gels or varnishes, but there are multiple preparations for use outside of the dental office. A frequent mode are weekly type rinses, (schools, nursing home), or rinse daily (before going to sleep, use at home). There are several commercial preparations such as toothpastes with fluoride, fluoride tablets or drops and even chewing gum with fluoride.

Another of his presentations is applied topically by the dentist and It’s a very simple technique. To remove plaque from your teeth, brush teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste for prophylaxis, and rinsed and well dried tooth surface then placed fluoride in the form of gel in a few special trays that have the shape of the dental arches. In addition, in some regions is added fluoride to the water, although this measure is controversial in some countries, since it is not known how much water can drink each, and thus could exceed the limits for daily intake of fluorine. This is not all about fluorine, it is important to mention, that continuous fluoride ingestion can be harmful and cause a fluorosis (white spots on teeth). That is why it is very important that the parents of children are very attentive to these not swallowing the toothpaste or fluoride rinses. In the long run, its excessive consumption constitutes a poison and could cause general problems in the body. Fluorine is very beneficial, but must be used always following standards and recommendations of its dentist. The dentist can tell you if you are getting enough daily fluoride, or if on the contrary there is insufficient. See: Periodontics dental source: press release sent by drprieto.
