Fluoride is a mineral that can be found in your body and throughout nature. Some common sources of fluoride include water, plants, soil, and bones. For decades now, fluoride has been used medically thanks to its chemical compatibility with calcium.
It’s helpful to think of fluoride as a foundational material like cement. Because this mineral can easily bind with calcium, your body can use fluoride to replace the material your teeth have lost. This not only helps repair the damage but also protects them from tooth decay.
We have over 70 years of scientific data validating the safety and effectiveness of fluoride. In addition, countless studies have been done attesting to fluoride’s impact on tooth decay. In fact, those studies showed that just adding fluoride to the drinking water can reduce tooth decay by 25% in the tested communities. Furthermore, the CDC even went so far as to name adding fluoride to the water supply one of the greatest public health achievements in the 20th century.
