FLUORIDE INFORMATION: IS FLUORIDE GOOD TO HAVE IN YOUR TOOTHPASTE?

Fluoride In Toothpaste

Strengthening your teeth and making them more resistant to decay. That's the role played by fluoride in toothpaste. Every expert on toothpaste will recommend a product that contains fluoride for that reason. Here are the three most important things about your toothpaste: that you use it, that you like it, and that it contains fluoride to help strengthen your teeth. If a toothpaste has these three things going for it, it's good and aside from these things, no single toothpaste is any better than any other. 

Baking soda and peroxide are promoted as cleaning agents but they are flavoring agents only. People who like the taste of toothpastes with these ingredients will enjoy using them but pay much more, just for the taste. The important ingredient is fluoride in toothpaste. Others are just for taste that people like for for something to advertise to sell more of the product. 

Fluoride is also the only important ingredient in the so-called "whitening toothpastes." The fact is they don't whiten anyone's teeth. They just don't work that way. The whitening action is again, just a false sales pitch. Dentists can help with teeth whitening by prescribing bleaching kits that work well, but every dentist will agree that the important ingredient is fluoride in toothpaste. 

Monofluorophosphate (MFP) is good. So is sodium fluoride and so is stannous fluoride in toothpaste. These all are used in various toothpastes and are all excellent for preventing decay and strengthening enamel.  For more information on fluoride in toothpaste and which toothpaste to choose, ask your dentist.
