Fractured And Broken Teeth

You're enjoying a piece of hard candy or chewing on an unpopped popcorn when you realise that there is something hard in your mouth that doesn't melt or dis-solve. You get a sick feeling as you realise what it is - a piece of broken tooth. It is not uncommon for people to get a chipped tooth. It can happen due to chewing on hard things, a fall or even to a sports injury.

Fluoride and Dental Health

Fluoride is a compound containing fluorine - a natural element. Using small amounts of fluoride on a regularly basis can help prevent tooth decay Fluoride prevents loss of minerals from tooth enamel and encourages remineralisation - strengthening areas that are weakened and beginning to develop cavities. Fluoride also affects bacteria that cause cavities by discouraging acid attacks that break down the tooth. The risk of decay is reduced further when fluoride is combined with a healthy diet and good oral hygiene.
