What is fluoride?

vanish_packets_group_D-300x248Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can help to protect your teeth from decay. As acids, sugars, and bacteria break down the tooth enamel every day, fluoride helps to remineralize the tooth structure and prevent tooth decay. Fluoride is found in water and many foods, as well as in several types of toothpaste, mouthwash, and other products. We provide professional dental fluoride in Glenwood Springs, Colorado, to keep your teeth healthy and free from decay.
