FLUORIDE

What is fluoride? Fluoride is a naturally occurring mineral that can be found in water in differing amounts, all dependant on where you live.

It helps to prevent tooth decay, which is why it’s added to many brands of toothpaste.

Brushing your teeth thoroughly with fluoride toothpaste is one of the most effective ways of preventing tooth decay.

A range of toothpastes are available that contain different levels of fluoride. The amount of fluoride that’s in the toothpaste can be found on the side of the tube and is measured in parts per million (ppm). Toothpastes containing 1350-1500ppm fluoride are the most effective.

Children under three years old should brush twice daily, with a smear of toothpaste containing no less than 1000ppm fluoride.

Children between three and six years old should brush at least twice daily with a pea-sized amount of toothpaste containing more than 1000ppm fluoride.

Adults should brush at least twice daily with toothpaste containing 1350-1500ppm fluoride.

Don’t use mouthwash at the same time as brushing. Use it at an alternative time, because it washes away the fluoride in the toothpaste.
