Made from: Fluorite
- Strengthening tooth enamel: Fluoride helps to remineralize and strengthen tooth enamel, making teeth more resistant to decay caused by acids and plaque.
- Preventing tooth decay: Fluoride inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria and reduces the production of acid in the mouth, thereby preventing tooth decay and cavities.
- Reversing early stages of decay: In some cases, fluoride can reverse the early stages of tooth decay by promoting remineralization and repairing weakened enamel.
- Reducing tooth sensitivity: Fluoride can alleviate tooth sensitivity by strengthening the enamel and reducing exposure of dentin, the sensitive layer beneath it.
- Promoting overall oral health: Regular use of fluoride toothpaste can contribute to maintaining good oral health by preventing cavities and gum diseases.
