  • Fluoride combines with the tooth surface and makes the enamel stronger so that it becomes more resistant to acid attack and it’s dissolution in the acid decreases. Along with this it helps in remineralization of incipient lesions. Fluoride benefits both children and adults. If ingested systemically during the formation oftoth it is sad that fluoride alters the tooth morpology and teeth no longer remain caries prone.Excess exposure of fluoride during tooth development can lead to dental fluorosis.
