A project is underway in San Jose, California, to modernize the city's water system so it contains teeth-protecting fluoride.
According to the American Dental Association (ADA), adding fluoride to community water supplies is an excellent way to support dental health because this mineral helps prevent cavities, meaning less Americans have to get fillings.
Fluoride is a relatively inexpensive way for individuals to receive dental care, for it also contributes in halting tooth decay and slowing the development of bacteria. It costs around 50 cents per day in larger communities, potentially $3 a day in smaller, the ADA reveals.
San Jose is reportedly one of several areas in the state that do not currently have fluoride added to its tap water, and WaterTech Online reveals that the city has run into problems trying to change that due to the fact that the local water supplier is privately owned.
Residents concerned about dental health should visit their dentists regularly, the ADA suggests, as well as brush and floss twice daily to keep teeth clean.
