How does fluoride make your teeth strong?


Answer by  mixedup (64)

Tooth enamel consists primarily of calcium phosphate. Teeth are as strong as the enamel which makes up their superstructure. Calcium and flourine form a strong chemical bond. Fluoride is used to bind calcium in the enamel of your teeth, strengthening the enamel itself (and thereby, your teeth).

If given when teeth are forming (as a child), the actual shape of the teeth can be altered with depth of pits and fissures on molars being reduced - which can lead to less dental decay, the slight variation in shape is not noticable to non dental personnel!!

Fluoride mouth wash and tooth paste makes your teeth strong by coating them in a acid resistant shield of fluoride that protects against the acids diluted by sugars that will cause tooth decay.

Fluoride that is absorbed by your body is used by the cells that build your teeth to make stronger enamel. Fluoride is a natural element that can be found in many things, like the water we drink and the food we eat.
