Nanohydroxyapatite vs. Fluoride


Fluoride vs. nano-hydroxyapatite toothpaste. Which is better?

Fluoride has been known to be effective at cavity prevention and remineralization when used with correct dosages. Too much fluoride can cause fluorosis (cosmetic damage to teeth commonly seen in children).

Hydroxyapatite is a material that naturally occurs in our bones, teeth, and saliva. And nano-hydroxyapatite has been shown to remineralize enamel by replacing minerals such as calcium and phosphate, that are lost from acid produced by bacteria.

Both fluoride and nano-hydroxyapatite remineralizes the teeth in different ways, and both are just as effective. Ultimately it boils down to your personal preference and which you feel is best suited for you.
