Facts About Fluoride

You eat a well-balanced diet. So does your family. You brush regularly. You floss every day. You see your dentist every six months. You've got your bases covered, right? But are you getting enough Fluoride? Fluoride, a natural element present in certain foods and water sources, is vital for strong, decay-resistant teeth. If you're lucky, you're one of millions of Canadians who benefit from the fluoridation of their drinking water. If not, you may need to take extra steps to make sure you are exposed to the proper amounts of this decay fighter.

Consider the facts:

Think of fluoride as your secret weapon. It's the key to good dental health. But like any team player, it can't offer you full protection by itself. You need to back it up with regular bushing, flossing and regular visits to your dentist.
