How does fluoride work to make your teeth strong?


Answer by  guitarnut02 (20)

Fluoride ion on the surface of teeth slows the depletion of minerals from your tooth enamel and simultaneously accelerates the deposition of minerals in tooth enamel.


Answer by  ASgret (23)

Your teeth are made of calcium oxide (CaO). Fluoride replaces the oxygen in the structure, forming calcium fluoride (CaF2). Fluoride is harder for bacteria to remove than oxygen.
