Did you know an estimated 200 million people drink and cook with fluoridated water every day?
In fact, most drinking waters naturally contain fluoride. And when adjusted to a certain level, fluoride can help stop and reduce the development of tooth decay.
Community water fluoridation has been around for more than 60 years and has helped millions of people fight tooth decay. Because of its safety, effectiveness, and low cost, fluoride was named one of the top 10 great public health interventions by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Good oral health habits like drinking fluoridated water, brushing and flossing teeth, and visiting the dentist regularly will help maintain a healthy mouth.
