How to Keep Your Mouth Clean with a Fluoride Allergy

Posted on 11/16/2020 by Barbara Ketchum
How to Keep Your Mouth Clean with a Fluoride AllergyMost people link allergies to animals, food, or outdoor environmental factors. While this is true, you also need to know that anyone can be allergic to chemicals such as fluoride found mainly in toothpaste. As you may know, toothpaste is an essential part of oral hygiene and dental health in general. So if you are allergic to it, then you will find yourself unable to keep up with proper dental hygiene practices. But that should not be something to worry about when there are many solutions to your problem. Read on to learn how you can keep your mouth clean despite being allergic to fluoride.

How  to Care For Your Oral Health If You are Allergic to Flouride

Having a fluoride allergy should not prevent you from practicing proper dental care. That is the reason there are different brands of non-fluoride toothpaste to help you keep your mouth clean. These dental care products do not have a fluoride additive that can trigger any allergic reactions to you. On the other hand, you can maintain your healthy enamel by avoiding acidic foods and drinks. None-acidic foods will keep the pH levels in your mouth more alkaline than acidic. Such conditions will prevent oral bacteria from producing acid that erodes tooth enamel. 

Alternatively, you can keep oral bacteria levels under control by sipping water or green tea before rinsing your mouth thoroughly. You can also chew sugar-free gum to keep your mouth clean and your teeth healthy. If possible, take a few vitamin D and calcium supplements to make your teeth strong if you are allergic to fluoride. Regular dental evaluation can as well play an active role in maintaining your oral hygiene in the event of a fluoride allergy. In this regard, you need to visit your dentist from time to time to check the condition of your teeth. Call us today to schedule your next teeth cleaning and screening session with us.
