You rarely hear the word “toothpaste” without it being preceded by “fluoride.” Fluoride toothpaste is good for teeth, and at Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington TX, we encourage its use.
Fluoride is an essential mineral that helps your teeth stay strong. It is found in some foods and water and makes toothpastes more effective at fighting cavities. Fluoride helps teeth by making them stronger and more resistant to the harmful acids that are formed by bacteria.
If you wonder if you and your child are getting enough fluoride, talk to us about fluoride supplements. We will let you know if they are required and determine the precise supplement dosage.
At Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington TX, we are committed to maintaining the dental health of each of our valued patients. Patients from Mansfield and Grand Prairie come to us for general and restorative dentistry. Contact us today!
