Fluoride use urged for dental health
Updated: 9/19/2008 2:00:19 PM

Fluoride use urged for dental health The dental health benefits of adding fluoride to the community water supply have been explained by a Florida senior dentist.

Writing in the St Petersburg Times, Dr Madeline D. Berk said that adding fluoride to water helps people of all incomes to receive a boost to their dental health.

She suggested that "even in an area of widespread availability of fluoride from other sources" such as toothpaste, water fluoridation is still an important element in fighting tooth decay.

Among the bodies that support community water fluoridation are the American Dental Association, the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

And the U.S. has set a target to ensure that at least three-quarters of the population has access to this dental health measure by 2010.

Often, children are the group that benefits most from more exposure to fluoride, dental health professionals suggest.

Earlier this year, Alabama dentist Dr Robert McDaniel told the Decatur Daily that kids who do not have access to fluoridated water are "five or six times" more likely to suffer from cavities than those who do.
