Your family deserves the safest and most effective dental care available today. For this reason, Bel Canto is a fluoride-free dental practice. You do not need to use fluoride products to maintain a healthy mouth and there are more natural ways to prevent cavities and gum disease. We think it is time to sing a requiem mass for over-zealous fluoride use.

Fluoride is routinely added to toothpaste and to many mouthwashes and is still frequently prescribed as a form of preventative dental care. Nowadays an increasing number of people are beginning to question the benefits of topical fluoride applications.

Excess fluoride ingestion has been linked to:

  • Dental fluorosis
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Intellectual impairment
  • Thyroid deficiency
  • Decreased glucose tolerance

We believe in providing fluoride-free dentistry simply because the argument for it protecting against tooth decay doesn’t stand up to scrutiny. Tooth decay is caused by a bacterial infection and its development is influenced by many different factors that include nutrition, diet and lifestyle, dental hygiene and hereditary factors.

Instead of prescribing fluoride we prefer to look at the probable causes for poor dental health so these factors can be reduced or eliminated.

Your dentist can work with you to discover what could be increasing your risk and we can devise a suitable treatment plan using safe, fluoride-free procedures and products.

At Bel Canto Dental, we can also provide you with high-quality, fluoride-free products to help you maintain a healthy mouth at home.

PrevDent Toothpaste uses nano-hydroxyapetite technology to help repair damaged tooth enamel while naturally whitening teeth and restoring their lustre. This toothpaste helps to eliminate tooth sensitivity often caused by thinning and damaged tooth enamel and it contains xylitol for greater protection against cavities. Xylitol is a naturally occurring sugar substitute that works against decay-causing bacteria in the mouth. The Nano technology helps repair the tooth on such a tiny level other toothpastes cannot do.

Eleva Moisturising Mouth Rinse is made from plant-sourced products including almond oil and peppermint oil and helps to treat gum disease, reducing harmful bacteria such as plaque.

OraMD® is a natural product using spearmint and peppermint oils that have antibacterial qualities to help remove bacteria and plaque build-up and to freshens breath by creating a healthy oral environment this we recommend as an alternative to toothpaste.
