Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by making the tooth more resistant to acid attacks from plaque bacteria and sugars in the mouth. It also reverses early decay. The daily use of a fluoride toothpaste and mouth rinses are an important part of a successful oral home care program. Mouth rinses and toothpaste containing fluoride in lower strengths are available over the counter. But relying on these products alone may not be enough.
Newer evidence suggests that fluoride treatments can be more beneficial for adults than was previously thought. If you, or a family member, are at a moderate-to-high risk of developing caries, a professional fluoride treatment can help.
