Yes, there are alternatives. I found a link that has lots of answers: Are there any safe alternatives to fluoride? | AnswerbagI am hesitant to use the Fluoride recommended for my children ages 2 - 6. I occasionally give them the vitamins and let the older two brush with fluoride toothpaste as long as they spit carefully. Now one has a cavity and my Mother of the Year award is eroding away. Do you all know of any natural alternatives? I hate to think of them with tooth problems, but I'm afraid fluoride problems are worse. I hoped good nutrition and good brushing would be enough.
I am one of those people that needs to visit a dentist regularly (even though I don't care to) because for some reason, my teeth rot-out quickly. Both my parents have dentures due to teeth rotting away, and, no matter how much brushing they have done over the years, there was no way that they could keep their teeth.
I am on my way towards that as well - just had my first-tooth pulled at the dentist. I'll be getting an implant whenever the dentist feels that it can be done.
