Fluoride is a naturally occurring substance that can be beneficial to oral health. After years of research, we know how fluoride works to strengthen your teeth and protect your smile.

Key takeaways:


  • Mineral compounds in fluoride interact with calcium in the dental enamel and strengthen it. A strong enamel makes your teeth less vulnerable to wear and tear.
  • Fluoride treatments can help reverse decay in its early stages (as long as it hasn’t reached the dentin), making it unnecessary to undergo further treatment.
  • Brushing with toothpaste that contains fluoride helps distribute this mineral into your saliva. This prevents dry mouth and minimise the risk of developing cavities.

If you aren’t getting enough fluoride through drinking water, you may need to switch to fluoride-based oral care products or get a treatment from your dentist.
