At Tara Kaur, DDS, we do not promote the use of fluoride to prevent tooth decay. In our opinion, there is not enough current scientific evidence to prove fluoride to be 100% safe. The potential detrimental effects that fluoride may have on your body as a whole are substantial enough to warrant concern.

There are many natural alternatives to fluoride which provide excellent tooth decay prevention and tooth re-mineralization. Proper nutrition is the foundation for all health, including dental health. In  addition, dental hygiene practices such as brushing, flossing and oral irrigation are also necessary.  Above and beyond that, there are dental products that can assist in cavity prevention and gum health. Our office offers a number of oral health products which are natural alternatives to fluoride and promote whole body wellbeing.
