Family Dentists at Alaska Dental Arts North Pole Explain the Benefits of Fluoride , Fairbanks North Star, Alaska

It’s no secret that many people think fluoride is harmful to your health and to your teeth. However, did you know that the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends using fluoride? That’s right—fluoride can be found in your water and in some toothpastes and rinses. At Alaska Dental Arts North Pole, you can count on an experienced dental team to answer all of your questions about fluoride. This affordable family dentist office is located in Greater Fairbanks, AK, and if you call this city home, then you are in luck! Your neighborhood dentists are here to make sure your mouth stays healthy. No matter what you have heard about fluoride and oral health, these experts are here to tell you that fluoride is safe, and it works.

According to a study published in General Dentistry, the Academy of General Dentistry’s peer-reviewed journal, the power of fluoride cannot be denied: “Fluoride makes the entire tooth structure more resistant to decay and promotes remineralization, which aids in repairing early decay before damage is even visible.”

The biggest myth out there is that fluoride will destroy your teeth. Fluoride is a chemical ion of fluorine. Did you know that fluorine is an element that occurs naturally in the earth’s crust? When fluorine—which has a negative charge—meets a positively-charged ion, your mouth will fight cavities with extra strength. Once fluoride makes its way into your enamel, it teams up with calcium and phosphate to create a shield made of fluorapatite. This shield will protect your teeth from decay. How wonderful is that? The next time someone tells you that fluoride is bad for your teeth, don't let them scare you.
