For what?: Fluoride is used to help strengthen the enamel surface of teeth, reduce sensitivity and help prevent cavities. It is can be used in toothpastes, rinses, topical gels, etc. And both as an otc product and in higher concentrations as prescribed or dispensed by your dentist. Discuss your particular needs with your own dentist for the best advice on this subject.
