In a Nutshell:

Fluoride is needed to help reduce dental caries.


Fluoride is mostly found in teeth and bones. The human body has about 2 to 6 g of fluoride.

Fluoride is an essential trace element. It contributes to the strength of the bones and teeth and it helps makes the teeth resistant. It has also been claimed that fluoride can help prevent the development of osteoporosis.

Fluoride is an important trace element which is responsible for the hardening of bones and teeth. Fluoride helps to make the teeth resistant to caries.

If you have a well-balanced diet, there is no risk in getting a fluoride deficiency.

A fluoride deficiency in children can lead to rotten teeth.

Too much fluoride can cause dental fluorosis (whitish to brown-coloured stains on the enamel of the remaining teeth).


Fluoride in Foods:

Fluoride rich foods include black tea and fish, eggs, meat, wheat products and tap water.
