Are children more sensitive to fluoride than adults? My child drinks fluoridated water and uses toothpaste and mouth rinse with fluoride, as i do. Is this too much for his baby teeth?
Be careful: Children are not allowed to use adult tooth paste because of content is being not appropriate for children's health norms. Using excessive amount of Fluoride is not only going to create problems with the teeth, but also may affect the whole bone system. It makes bone structure much more brittle and teeth discolored. In some cases just fluoridated water is sufficient in providing necessary units. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Hmmm: You can brush with either;it is the mechanical action of the brush that removes the bacterial build up. Toothpaste will give you some Fluoride and has a mild abrasive to help remove stain. Mouthwash will 'freshen' your breath better but has no Fluoride or abrasive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Why do we use sodium flouride instead of calcium flouride in our toothpastes, mouthwashes etc? It's much less toxic than sodium flouride.
Not bio-available: The short answer is that calcium Fluoride is so extremely insoluble as to be considered unusable by your body. Sodium and stannous fluorides are able to be broken down and then the fluorides can enter into and bond with the enamel. Enamel is made of a ring of ions and the Fluoride substitutes in the center to form a more stable ring. This new "ring" is more resistant to decay. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Not at all: Listerine contains antibacterial ingredients, and the fluoride is the best thing to prevent cavities. Use only as directed on label. Do not overuse. Mouthwash does not replace either brushing or flossing. Brush 2x/day for 65-70% bacteria removal. Floss 1x/day to remove 25-30% of bacteria from between teeth where toothbrush can't reach. Use mouthwash 1x/day to remove 1-2% of bacteria. ...Read more
6 of one: Too much tea can discolor usually the back of the teeth. If you put a lot of real sugared sweetener in the tea, it could equal that of chocolate. Use diet sugar. The roughened area of the discoloration can cause decay to build. Chocolate is pure sugar, but if proper hygiene is done, neither will harm teeth. See your dentist every 6 months to know if you are under control with your use of both. L. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
With the "advantages/disadvantages" is toothpaste with fluoride better or toothpaste without it? I'm hearing different things. Thanks much!
Fluoride Toothpaste: Fluoride toothpaste is always better as it provides needed protection against the damage from bacteria. Many people are misinformed about fluoride. Ingested Fluoride from sources such as water, vitamins or anything swallowed is helpful only in growing children while their teeth are developing, in the proper amounts. Rare problems are possible. Ask your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I use crest pro health whitening toothpaste to brush my teeth? Is that a good toothpaste? Or do you prescribe a better toothpaste?
Great: That is a good toothpaste. It has an antibacterial component to it which lasts hours after brushing. But really, any toothpaste that contains flouride, that you like and use, is good. The toothpaste is really not all that important, it is more about brushing twice daily, for two minutes, with good technique. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Is it bad for a 34 year old to use too much flouride. Brush 2x a day, rinse with act 2x a day? Sometimes I use prescribed sodium flouride.

Can using to much mouthwash with peroxide, and toothpaste with baking soda cause me to have a salty taste in mouth?
Dental floss: For efficiency and patient compliance, I find that my patients do better with the floss picks. From a pure cleaning standpoint, floss wraps around the teeth better if you use is properly. If you are doing one or the other, you are doing better than 90 percent of America, so pat yourself on the back. Just make sure to floss daily along with twice daily brushing with fluoride toothpaste ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
