If we told you there was one magic ingredient you could use to ensure you never get cavities again, would you believe us?

If you answered no, then that’s a good thing! However, there is one thing you can use on a regular basis to lower your cavity risk even further than it is when coupled with a strict oral health routine and regular checkups with Dr. Edward Brandon at Edward S. Brandon DDS Inc in Brecksville, Ohio.

That’s fluoride. And it’s something you need.

What is it?

Fluoride is a naturally-occurring substance that’s been proven time and time again to help prevent cavities and bolster overall oral health. Despite the back-and-forth online articles heralding or decrying the use of fluoride, the truth is that the American Dental Association (ADA) has proven that fluoride is a good additive to your oral health routine and poses no health risk.

What does it do?

Fluoride mainly helps your teeth regenerate enamel lost due to your daily diet. The enamel is the outermost layer of your teeth, and protects the rest of your teeth from infection and cavities. Fluoride helps combat the enamel-eroding substances in our daily diets and keep your teeth as strong as possible.
