In brief: Strengthens enamel

Fluoride helps by making the enamel of your teeth more resistant to acid.
Fluoride can also reverse cavities that are starting to form on a microscopic level. When present it also interferes with the bacteria in your mouth so that they produce less acid and are less able to stick to your teeth.
