Protect Your Teeth With Fluoride

Backed By ADA Support

The ADA has recently reaffirmed its support for water fluoridation. After reviewing a recently published paper discussing the possible association between fluoridated water and bone cancer, it's been determined by the ADA that the fluoride in our water is safe for our community.

The ADA's Statement on Community Water Fluoride

With the use of fluoride in municipal water supplies coming under fire, the ADA has released a statement detailing their stance on supporting the practice.

"More than 70 years of scientific research has consistently shown that an optimal level of fluoride in community water is safe and effective in preventing tooth decay by at least 25% in both children and adults. Simply by drinking water, Americans can benefit from fluoride's cavity protection whether they are at home, work, or school. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention named community water fluoridation as one of 10 great public health achievements of the 20th century." Source

One thing to keep in mind is that some piping systems contain chloramine, which is a water disinfection byproduct. Some pipes in our country still contain lead, and when fluoride and chloramine combine, they extract high levels of lead from the pipes and contaminate the water. This is especially dangerous for children, greatly increasing their blood lead levels.

Research your local water sources to ensure that everything is safe for you and your family.
