The Applications of Fluoride Chemicals

2020-01-18

Hello guys! Today, we are going to discuss the applications as well as the benefits of fluoride chemicals. If you take a closer look at the daily things around your house you will be able to find fluoride chemicals in your home. The fluoride in the fluoride chemicals is a form of fluorine which is a chemical element that plays an important role in our life. Fluoride chemicals are mainly used for medicine as well as to improve the health and well-being of the people. For example, fluoride is mixed with the drinking water that is used by the public to prevent people from having tooth decay.

 

This is the reason why the people who do not drink the drinking water that has been provided for the public often have to buy their fluoride tablets to prevent themselves from getting tooth decay. Apart from that, fluoride is also added to mouthwashes as well as toothpaste so that it may be directly applied onto the surface of the tooth to decrease the level of sticky plaque that can often be found on the surface of the tooth. Fluoride chemicals also help to prevent the chance of having tooth decay and the swelling of the gum.

 

Applications

 

Currently, there are two types of fluoride chemicals on Yixin which are Potassium Fluotitanate and Potassium Fluoborate. Let's jump into the uses of Potassium Fluotitanate first. It has been known that Potassium Fluotitanate is not soluble in water and it is also a source of potassium that will be needed to be used in applications that are considered to be oxygen-sensitive such as the process of metal production. Potassium Fluotitanate is also usually used for metal alloy and the deposition of optical materials.

 

Next, let's take a closer look at some of the uses of Potassium Fluoborate. It has been known that Potassium Fluoborate is commonly used to produce soldering agents, abrasives, as well as ceramics. Apart from that, Potassium Fluoborate can also be used for aluminum metallurgy and it acts as one of the essential parts to cover the salts so that it could be used in a light metal casting. Potassium Fluoborate also acts as an active filler during the process of producing abrasives for metal treatment. Lastly, Potassium Fluoborate may be used as one of the important parts of the fluxing agents for brazing.

 

Pros of Fluoride Chemicals

 

One of the most obvious benefits of fluoride chemicals that are widely known is the fact that fluoride chemicals help to prevent dental cavities which is very important in our daily life. Dental caries which are also known as tooth decay or tooth cavities is a type of an oral disease that may harm the tooth. The usual root cause of dental caries is the bacteria that are living in the mouth of the patient. Carbs will be broken down by these bacteria which will then allow organic acids to be produced which will then have the potential to damage the enamel of the tooth, which is a type of external layer of the tooth that is rich in minerals.

 

When you decide to brush your teeth using toothpaste, what happens is that the fluoride that is contained in the toothpaste will decrease the rate of demineralization of your teeth which is a good thing. In other words, fluoride will help your tooth enamel to make the process of losing its minerals to become slower so that it will be able to stay strong. Apart from that, fluoride will also enhance the rate of remineralization of your tooth as it will increase the rate of repairing of the tooth enamel and it will also ensure that the minerals will be put back to your tooth enamel.

 

Cons of Fluoride Chemicals

 

However, it's also important for us to keep in mind that there are also some disadvantages of fluoride chemicals. The first disadvantage of fluoride chemicals is that an extreme amount of fluoride that a person takes may cause him or her to get fluorosis. There are two major kinds of fluorosis which are skeletal fluorosis and dental fluorosis. Dental fluorosis can be identified by the external physical changes of the teeth and usually, it can be observed as a white spot on the surface of the teeth.

 

The skeletal fluorosis is a type of bone disease which is usually caused by the accumulation of fluoride in the bone of the patient. During the early stages of skeletal fluorosis, the patient may have to deal with some joint pain as well as stiffness and in some cases, the bone structure will be changed which will be bad for the health of the patient. However, skeletal fluorosis only occurs when the patient is heavily exposed to an extremely high level of fluoride for a long time.

 

Conclusion

 

In a nutshell, fluoride chemicals have a wide range of applications that have been proven to be beneficial for humanity. It helps us to prevent ourselves from having dental cavities which can cause our tooth to be weak, promotes the rate of mineralization of our tooth and also helps us to prevent the growth of bad bacteria in our mouth. Apart from that, fluorinated water supply is extremely effective in preventing tooth decay to the extent that it has been praised for a sudden decrease in the level of people getting dental cavities. However, the only downside of fluoride chemicals is that it cannot be taken in an excessive amount but if we take a closer look at that, we will find that it's just a normal law of life which we have encounter in the past and just like the wise men used to say, "Too much of anything is not good".

 

Hence, the problem does not lie on fluoride chemicals but rather lies on the habits of the people that decide to take it at a particular amount so it's highly recommended for you to take a considerate amount of fluoride so that you would be able to reap the benefits of using fluoride chemicals in your daily life without having to worry about the diseases that are linked with it.
