Although some claim that fluoride use isn’t necessary, Dr. Jeffry Gilmor from the Glen Dental Center in Illinois tends to disagree.
Studies by the American Dental Association show that using fluoride helps reduce cavities in children and adults. Fluoride use can also prevent and repair tooth decay in the early stages, even before you can see it or feel it.
Natures’ Cavity Fighter
Dr. Gilmor explains that fluoride is one of Mother Natures’ best tooth decay fighters and will help you and your family keep your teeth healthy and strong.
Where it Began
When a small community in Michigan starting adding fluoride to the municipal water supply over 50 years ago, it became the very first in America to do so. Soon other towns and cities would follow suit, as it became the most effective measure in helping prevent tooth decay.
Why the Uproar
The American Dental Association supports fluoride in city and town water supplies. Based on scientific research, the FDA sternly discredits the claims that fluoride is unsafe. If you are unsure about your municipal water supply, you can contact your supplier. If you rely on well water, you should have the well water tested.
Bottled water is becoming more popular with people opting for water in bottles instead of from the tap. Because most brands do not add fluoride, people are missing out on one of the most vital minerals for teeth.
If you insist on consuming bottled water, talk to Dr. Gilmor from the Glen Dental Center in Glenview about fluoride supplements such as fluoride toothpaste or mouthwash. If you are prone to tooth decay, ask Glen Dental about professional fluoride treatments.
Brushing, flossing, regular checkups with your dentist and a good diet will help keep your teeth and gums strong and healthy, but so will fluoride use.
