Fluoride for Teeth - 4 Myths and Facts About it

Fluoride for Teeth - 4 Myths and Facts About it

Fluoride is a chemical naturally present in water and in some foods and is essential for healthy bone growth.  A few decades ago, fluoride was discovered to have anti-cariogenic (against tooth decay) properties and slowly gained popularity. While most believe that fluoride can do wonders for your teeth and help you get rid of all problems, it is not true.  There is only so much that fluoride can do and there are also undesirable effects from it.

Read on to know some myths about fluoride versus the actual facts.

Myth: Drinking fluoridated water can lead to fluorosis, which produces brown, pitted teeth, which are weak and aesthetically unappealing.

Fact:  People develop fluorosis only when the water contains excessive amounts of fluorine.  The currently defined permissible level is about 0.7 parts per million. At this level, fluoride provides the maximum protection against caries, at the same time not leading to fluorosis.  In some cases, mild fluorosis can be seen, which only produces white speckles on the tooth and not brown pits.  These teeth have a higher resistance to decay than people drinking non-fluoridated water.

Myth: Fluoride is a forced medication

Fact: Fluoride is a chemical with special benefits to the bones and teeth.  In cases where the water does not contain sufficient quantities of fluoride or where the person is prone for decay, adding fluoride will provide the extra level of protection against caries.

Myth: Adding fluoride to the drinking water leads to various other medical conditions (heart disease, cancer, etc.)

Fact: Various studies have shown that this is not true. In fact, fluoride has been endorsed as safe to use and does not contribute to any diseases like heart disease, cancer, autism, or kidney problems.

Myth: Fluoride is not safe for children.

Fact: Children need a good amount of fluoride in their tooth forming years. This produces teeth that are more resistant to decay and are stronger generally. If the regular supply of water does not contain sufficient fluoride, then the child can be given supplements in the form of fluoridated toothpastes and gel applications at the clinic to provide the anti-cariogenic benefit.

Myth: If there is enough water in the fluoride, then there is no worry of tooth decay.

Fact: Fluoride only makes the teeth resistant to easy decay, it does not protect from decay completely.  Proper oral hygiene habits (brushing, flossing, rinsing, dental visits) are essential to ensure that there is no plaque accumulation and food deposits to prevent caries.  Fluoride is not a replacement for these practices.

Like with anything else, even excessive fluoride is not good for health, therefore the recommended level is 0.7 ppm.  Ensure fluoride supplements are used only after a discussion with your dentist.

Okay you have to get it diagnosed yellow is because of fluorosis or enamel hypoplasia or any other developmental abnormality. Visit your dentist who can diagnose it. Treatment options are different depends on the teeth. Teeth bleeching, teeth veneers or crowns can help you.

Hello, you can apply baking soda over it or do baking soda in water mouth rinses. This will help to heal your ulcers. If they still persist, you need to consult a physician and get your vitamin B levels checked. If required take supplements for it.

Dear , Is there history of any injury to the tooth or a decay present on the tooth. Kindly get yourself examined by a dentist immediately and most probably you have to go for a root canal of the tooth. Regards

Sir can you tell me in which way I can amke my teeh whiter and stronger. Can you suggest me a tooth paste?
We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning along with whitening & gum strengthening procedure. Use snowdent tooth paste for whitening until then. Apply snowdent paste on the teeth. Wait for 10 to 15 min. Then brush your teeth with the same paste. Applying it overnight for better results. Advance procedures can be done with laser. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Kindly consult a dentist in person for further suggestion. We need more investigations to decide upon treatment. You may need chewing gum or sialogogues (pilocarpine 30 mg/day. Contraindications - include many lung conditions, such as asthma, cardiac problems, epilepsy and parkinson's disease). You may consult me in person too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner.
