Fluoride fillings are one of the most effective treatments available for preventing and limiting the occurrence and spread of tooth decay. It is a naturally occurring mineral found in foods and drinks, such as fish and tea, but it can also be synthesized (manufactured). Synthetic fluoride is used in toothpastes, from which most people get the daily required fluoride quantities. Adult, as well as children, need to focus on brushing teeth with fluoride pastes on a regular basis as well as consume water which contains fluoride in it in the recommended quantities. If you are not able to follow these basic things, then you should get fluoride fillings done to provide the required fluoride amounts to your teeth on a daily basis.
