Are you getting enough fluoride?

Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay by slowing the breakdown of tooth enamel and increasing the process of creating new enamel. So are you getting enough? First major question, do you drink tap water regularly? Tap water contains fluoride. However, if you do not drink tap water on a regular basis than you may need to get your dose of fluoride elsewhere. Fluoride is also found in almost all toothpastes and mouthwashes. Fluoride treatments are also available at your dentist’s office. They are quick and easy and may be just the thing you need to help keep your smile looking gorgeous!
Check out this article from OralB for more information.

Chocolate and your teeth

Now that everyone has eaten their fill of chocolate from Valentine’s Day let’s discuss how it may actually be good for you, in moderation of course. Chocolate contains polyphenols and flavonoids which prevent sugar from being broken down into bacteria that cause decay. The polyphenols are an anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory. They help to reduce the chances of hypertension and stroke. The cocoa butter in chocolate reduces the ability of plaque to stick to teeth.
Though chocolate should always be eaten in moderation, it makes it just a little bit sweeter that eating it may be considered somewhat good for you.
