Good or bad? Fluoride Toothpaste in London SE1

06 / 01 / 2014

You can find fluoride in abundance in London SE1, especially as it is the most commonly used element in your daily drinking water, put in essentially to kill off bacteria. The other most common place to find it of course is in toothpaste; most of the brands used today put it in their products, mouthwashes too. The reason for this is because it is considered to protect your teeth better against the threat of plaque and tooth decay, as it has been doing for over a hundred years now. Fluoride has been proven to re-mineralise the enamel, making it stronger against these threats to the teeth. Sounds good eh? Well not exactly. Fluoride in high levels is very toxic and can lead to fluorosis of the brain; it is also dangerous for children in high levels- kids love to eat more toothpaste than they brush with and in some cases, this has been fatal. It is a very thin line, but choice does err on the side of fluoride because of its advantages, however, if you have concerns, you should get the facts on-line or broach your concerns with your dentist before you make way up the odds and making any rash decisions about fluoride.
