Statistics have shown great results when it comes to fluoride and your teeth. Fluoride is the chemical in your drinking water that strengthens your teeth and reduces the possibility of decay.  It is especially beneficial to children who are in the ‘losing teeth’ stages. Their bodies will absorb the fluoride and their teeth will thank you! Now days, almost all dental hygiene products contain fluoride as well. Mouth wash, and tooth paste are great examples.  If you and your family are in an area that doesn’t add fluoride to your drinking water, contact your Glendale family dentist! We’ll happy direct you to a substitute.
