Fluoride’s oral health benefits are so widely noted that it is often inserted into dental health products and the public water supply. Though it can be harmful in large doses for very young children, fluoride is safe for consumption in low levels.
Fluoride reduces the effects of plaque and harmful acids on your teeth to protect and re-mineralize your tooth enamel. Check your mouthwash and toothpaste to ensure that they are fortified with fluoride; you can also find fluoride in supplements such as tablets. To ensure your products are safe and effective, look on the products’ labels for the American Dental Association’s (ADA) Seal of Acceptance.
