The pro’s and cons of Fluoride Toothpaste in London SE1

01 / 10 / 2013

Fluoride is one of those special minerals that have been serving the world of dentistry in London SE1 for well over a hundred years now. It is considered to have special qualities to help strengthen the enamel in the teeth and stave off the threat of cavities and decay in the mouth; this is one of the reasons why it is added to drinking water and can be found in many toothpastes being sold on the open market today- it does do a lot of magical things that are expected of it. But to every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, and since the 1960’s, science has started to question the qualities of fluoride and the need for it to be put into so many toothpastes today. In very rare cases, it can be fatal for some children if over-used and along with this, too much consumption can lead to fluorosis of the brain. However, fluoride still has the ability to protect your mouth so the moral here is not just about using it in moderation, but also about diet. Third world countries don’t have fluoride in their water and toothpastes and the level of tooth decay is no higher than in developed countries. It is a hard call to make so seek out advice from your dentist if you have concerns.
