Role of Fluoride in the field of dentistry is still a mystery

Yangzhou E.S.Toothbrush Co.,Ltd | Updated: Jul 29, 2016

It is still a mystery that how the fluoride to play its role. A new study shows that fluoride forms a thinner protective shield than experts thought it did. American consumers spend more than $50 billion a year fighting cavities. When we realized that fluoride could help prevent from cavities, we put it in our drinking water, our toothpaste and our mouthwash. But how does fluoride work its magic? Many figured that fluoride chemically reacts with the main mineral in enamel to form a thick, decay-resistant veneer. But the latest research overthrow that idea in the teeth. 

Scientists in Germany used x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy to get a detailed image of the surface of a treated tooth. And they found that the protective covering is actually only 6 nano meters thick. And a layer that skimpy would likely be destroyed by ordinary chewing. 

 It is still a mystery that how the fluoride to protect our teeth. In the meantime, we may not know how it works, but we know that it works. So keep brushing.
