High-fluoride toothpaste may be beneficial in numerous ways.
A Swedish study from Malmo University suggests that this toothpaste thwarts white spots from developing on the teeth when braces are worn. The fluoride toothpaste possesses four times the regular amount of fluoride found in toothpaste.
Numerous studies have shown that 85 percent of people who have braces develop some kind of white lesions stemming from a type of decay.
This toothpaste proved effective in stopping one third of the white lesions in 11- to 16-year-olds. No toothpaste prior to this one proved to be as reliable in preventing the white spots.
