Put Up Your Dukes! Against Astute Bacteria
The mineral fluoride was first introduced to toothpastes and municipal water in the ‘50’s because of its ability to harden tooth enamel and fight decay-causing bacteria. But now, almost 80 years later, the war on cavities just got a little dirtier. Recent findings indicate that the bacteria that cause cavities can now fend off fluoride, brilliantly working to sabotage its tooth-positive effects. Scientists don’t know how bacteria does this, but when they do, it will offer the means to create an oral health regimen that is more bacteria-hostile.
But wait! Don’t abandon fluoride! Using fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day, and flossing once a day, continues to be your best defense against plaque buildup and cavities. Regular professional hygiene (cleaning) appointments are also critical to maintaining your healthy smile.
