Fluoride is one of those words you keep hearing about in both positive and negative sense. Some say use a fluoride toothpaste and some say don't. You might have heard people in Edmonton rambling about floridification of water, it is stopped in Edmonton and most parts of Canada. However, no solid evidence is found against ill effects of fluoride in water. It is a mineral found naturally in all your surroundings. In the air you breathe, in soil and in water. There is no need to get scared of fluoride. One thing we can say for sure is that fluoride does have some good effects on your teeth and oral health.
Why use a fluoride toothpaste?
95% of toothpaste sale is made from fluoride toothpastes. It simply means way too many people use fluoride toothpastes. They are available in various brands, and for various purposes like whitening and cavity protection and removing tartar. Many of them are recommended by dental health associations. Here is why you should use a fluoride toothpaste
Amount of fluoride in tooth paste
If you have children in family and are worried about their fluoride intake, you should get a toothpaste with less than 600 ppm (parts per million) of fluoride. For a normal adult, use toothpastes with a fluoride amount of 1000 to 1500 ppm. Children tend to swallow the toothpaste more and hence the precaution. Avoid using a fluoride toothpaste altogether of children less than 2 years of age. See a dentist, he will understand your needs better and give you a prescription toothpaste if you need one.
