You know how it goes. Someone forwards an email or online message that claims fluoride is dangerous, poisonous, or part of some kind of giant conspiracy. Don’t listen to bad science. To be honest, fluoride in toothpaste and tap water is perfectly safe for you. In fact, it helps strengthen your teeth and fight cavities.Call either of our Connecticut dental offices (203-372-1220 for Bridgeport/Trumbull and 203-378-9737 for Shelton) to schedule a dental cleaning and dental exam. Even with the help of fluoride at home, you still need regular checkups every six months.
