Is fluoride good or bad?


Fluoride repairs damaged enamel.

Fluorine (gas), fluoride (liquid) occurs naturally in the bedrock. Groundwater and our food therefore contain a certain amount of fluoride.
Fluoride has a caries-reducing effect and stabilises bone tissue and repairs the enamel of teeth.

Tooth enamel is made up of hydroxyapatite, which is damaged by acid attacks and wear and tear.
Fluoride can be added to help repair damaged enamel. This creates fluorapatite on your teeth,
a new type of enamel that is less sensitive to acid attack.
Like many other substances and elements we ingest, fluoride is also dangerous to ingest in large quantities.
However, the amount of fluoride in toothpaste and mouthwash is so small that there is hardly any risk of overdose.
If we want to benefit from the positive properties of fluoride on our teeth, it is important to do so regularly as the
effect of fluoride is local and not very long lasting. Brush your teeth twice a day with a fluoride toothpaste
and supplement with a fluoride mouthwash.
When brushing your teeth, it is important to make sure that all teeth are brushed and not to rinse your mouth
with water after brushing in order to keep the fluoride on the surface of the teeth as long as possible.
It is also important to remember not to eat for at least an hour after brushing your teeth, to get the best possible effect from the fluoride.

We are certain that fluoride is good for you in safe quantities.

All our toothpastes and mouthrinses contain fluoride, but our specially developed oral care serie o.32 contains maximum fluoride (0.32 NAF) .
This serie was developed in colloboration with Swedish fluoride scientists and dentists.
