Sodium Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that serves to protect teeth from dental caries. It is scientifically proven that the correct amount of fluoride in water and the use of fluoride-containing toothpaste and mouth rinses have a significant benefit on oral health and help to reduce tooth decay. Sodium fluoride reduces caries by inhibiting demineralization (loss of minerals) and promoting remineralization of the tooth surface. Fluoride ions are taken up into the enamel and form fluorapatite which is harder than hydroxyapatite. Thus, fluoride strengthens the enamel which is then more resistant to acid attacks and the incidence of dental caries is reduced.
Acidulated Phosphate provides sodium fluoride. This is a mineral that strengthens tooth enamel and prevents tooth decay. Ask your dentist for advice, especially if you move to a new area where the amount of fluoride in the water may be different. This mineral may be used for other purposes; ask your health care provider or pharmacist if you have questions.
