Flouride and its benefits

Flour is a natural occurring mineral that be founded in water with varying degrees depending on geographic area. Flour can help prevent from the tooth decay, so many toothpaste manufacturers add to this ingredient in their products, but the amount of flour that will be controlled to a reasonable degree.

Toothpaste containing Flour

Brushing your teeth carefully with fluoride toothpaste is one of the most effective ways to avoid tooth decay. A variety of toothpastes on the market contain different levels of fluoride. However, the toothpaste containing 1350-1500ppm fluoride is the most effective. Your dentist may recommend a higher fluoride toothpaste if you or your child is at risk of tooth decay.

  • Children under three years of age should brush their teeth twice a day with a little toothpaste containing no less than 1000ppm of fluoride.
  • Children three to six years old should brushing at least twice a day with a small amount of toothpaste containing more than 1000ppm of fluoride.
  • Adults should brush at least twice a day with a toothpaste that contains 1350-1500ppm fluoride.

Do not use mouthwash at the same time with brushing, so use mouthwash at another time, as if you rinse your mouth immediately after brushing your teeth, this activity will be able to wash away the fluoride in the toothpaste.

Flour in the Toothpaste helps to increase saliva production, it is useful because the saliva helps protect the teeth against plaque and bacteria in your mouth. Beside that, Flour can bring to you the fresh breath and avoid the bad breath or halitosis.

Mouthwash containing Flour

Mouth rinses can be recommended by your doctor for adults and children aged from eight years and older with decay. Use mouthwash every day combined with brushing twice daily with toothpaste containing at least 1350ppm fluoride, but be careful not to use it immediately after brushing, as we said above, since this will reduce the beneficial effect of fluoride in toothpaste.

 Varnish toothpaste containing fluorideFluoride-based cleaning material used in Dental clinics can be applied to both baby teeth and adult teeth by the dentist. This process is performed by the dentist every 6 months, and the dentist will scan a varnish amount containing high levels of fluoride on the tooth surface to prevent tooth decay by strengthening the tooth enamel and makes enamel more resistant to tooth decay.At the age of three and even older, children should receive periodic dental checkups at least twice a year and at each visit, fluoride varnish should be given two or more times a year to children of all ages with caries or people at high risk of tooth decay. Is fluoride safe?There have been some concerns that replenishment of fluoride in the body may be associated with a variety of health conditions. A condition that can sometimes happen if a child’s teeth are exposed to too much fluoride while they are growing can cause yellowing or spotting on the surface of the teeth, enamel becoming dull.
