Fluoride is a natural mineral that helps strengthen enamel, the outer layer of a tooth, Strengthening the enamel makes it stronger and more resistant to decay. Fluoride is also used to reduce sensitivity in teeth caused by recession, grinding and other dental conditions. Although Fluoride has been readily available in over-the-counter toothpastes and even in city water in some areas, in certain cases it isn't enough and a higher percentage, professional strength application is needed. In some cases, a prescription for a stronger Fluoride toothpaste is given for use at home between regular check ups.
