More than 65 years of study has shown that water fluoridation is safe. Fluoridation of community water supplies is supported by the American Dental Association, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the US public Health Service, the American Academy of Pediatrics, etc.
Water fluoridation is the single most effective public health measure to prevent tooth decay. It has been named one of ten great public health achievements of the 20th century by the centers of disease control and prevention. Simply by drinking water, people can benefit from fluoridation’s cavity protection wherever they are.
The vast majority of bottled waters do not contain levels of fluoride needed to help prevent tooth decay. Check the label and contact the bottler if necessary to learn about the fluoride level of bottled water.
