The Truth About Fluoride Toothpaste For Kids
I think that many parents do not fully understand how FLUORIDE works and how it benefits the teeth. Fluoride used alone will reduce tooth decay by 24% as proven in over 400 scientific studies. If you use my Dr Branam Xylitol products daily in addition to any fluoride tooth paste, you will increase the reduction in tooth decay in your family to 72%. Wow, that is significant. Please remember, that tooth decay is a disease caused by bacteria that is shared from family members.
1.) Fluoride only hardens the enamel to resist the effects or oral acid and bacteria
2.) Fluoride in the drinking water only hardens the enamel of the tooth while it is forming in your jaw bone. The baby teeth are forming in your baby before birth.
3.) It is important for pregnant mothers to drink fluoridated water during pregnancy, because this fluoride will be transferred to the baby in the uterus.
4.) Fluoride in the drinking water minimally hardens the enamel of the tooth once it is erupted into the mouth.
5.) Fluoride in your tooth paste and the Fluoride treatments that are done by your dentist hardens the enamel of your tooth. The effects or the Fluoride treatment by your dentist "wears off" after about 5 months. That is why regular dental check ups are recommended.
6.) Ideally, you Do NOT need to drink fluoridated water after 15 years of age, because the enamel of the crown of your teeth is fully formed. It is important to drink fluoridated water until you are 15 years of age and younger.
I am personally not aware of any SCIENTIFIC evidence that Fluoride is harmful to a person's oral or general health. I am sure that someone can find an article or two that contradicts these facts. Natural Fluoride has been present in water for centuries. I have patients who live in rural areas, and the water on their farm actually has a level of Fluoride that is 2 times the recommended concentration. These patients are healthy and developing normally.
Fluoride does NOT reduce the tooth decay causing bacteria of the mouth. Fluoride does not raise the PH of the saliva. Fluoride does not make the surface of the tooth "slick " to reduce the plaque and sugar from adhering to your tooth. FLUORIDE ALONE HARDENS THE ENAMEL OF THE TEETH.

2.) Reduces the tooth decay causing bacteria by 72%
3.) Makes the tooth surface slick to reduce acid and bacteria adhering to the tooth.
Be sure to take your child to a PEDIATRIC DENTIST, because they know how to prevent tooth decay in your child. You should ask the pediatric dentist if they're are familiar with the benefits of Xylitol. Daily usage of Dr Branams xylitol products will reduce the tooth decay rate of your entire family.
