A human body is the finest and one of the most complexes of structures designed by nature; it is the wonder of all the wonders. Every single part of our body is formed in a complex pattern and functions uniquely but they still work together with each other in perfect harmony.
In the same way, the tooth is also a different structure having different part like enamel, dentine, cementum and pulp and they work seamlessly with our jaws, tongue and mouth so we can eat, speak and smile properly. We hardly ever notice how each part in our mouth functions like clockwork to help use taste the food and make it ready for digestion and absorption for other metabolic functions.
Out of these, our teeth play a very vital role. Can you imagine being toothless? Nobody can. Teeth are important in looks as well as in functionality. The part that protects and covers the tooth is called the enamel.
The outer most layers are the enamel. Tooth enamel is a hard mineral like substance that forms the rock hard layer of protection on the tooth. This is one of the hardest parts of the body. Enamel contains most fluoride and it is less soluble. A healthy layer of enamel means more resistance to tooth decay. Enamel is white in color and its color is the color of teeth.
The fluoride in enamel is s an indication of strong teeth. It is a naturally found mineral that prevents tooth decay and caries. If you want strong and problem free teeth then fluoride is the mineral that can help you.
We all have seen many toothpaste advertisements claiming to have fluoride in them. But does it really help? Yes, fluoride treatments really help strengthen the teeth and prevent tooth decay.
The enamel is made up of calcium and phosphate. The saliva also has these mineral to help to protect the teeth. When you eat the sugary and starch loaded food, the cavity causing bacteria get carbohydrate from that food and form the acid, which attacks the enamel and starts its erosion. It will strip off the calcium and phosphate from the outer layer, so the enamel became more vulnerable to decay. The result of enamel erosion causes irreparable damage to the teeth.
In order to avoid this damage the fluoride in our saliva along with other minerals steps in. The saliva protects the tooth from bacterial attacks. Salvia gets its source of fluoride from the water we drink, the food that we eat and the toothpaste that we use. Combined with the calcium, phosphate the fluoride makes a strong compound name fluorapatite that coats the teeth and makes them stronger.
However, saliva disrupts the attack and protects the tooth, by replacing the calcium and phosphate of enamel. If saliva has fluoride in it, from the source like toothpaste or water, it will help to form such a strong compound like fluorapatite, which makes a defense system from the decay and protect the teeth. Fluoride helps in demineralizing of the enamel.
