Fluoride and Braces?
- If you have braces, you should continue using toothpaste and mouth-wash with fluoride. Saliva is your mouth’s primary defense against tooth decay. Research has proven that fluoride works to prevent tooth decay by boosting the ability of saliva to return minerals to the teeth before cavities can develop. The best explanation of how fluoride works is that it enhances the natural properties of saliva.
