Q Is there a toothpaste that has more fluoride in it?
Yes. We have extra strength fluoride toothpaste in the office called Fluoridex. It has about 5 times the amount of flouride in it than a typical toothpaste does. Works really well if you have many cavities or if your are in braces. Sometimes, while in braces, white spots develop around those brackets and fluoride can minimize them. If a cavity only goes halfway through the enamel of your tooth, it is possible to remineralize that cavity with extra strength fluoride toothpaste so that the cavity never requires a filling. To learn more about fluoride, Dr. Freeman wrote an article about how fluoride works.
