Are you concerned about fluoride in water?
Some people are…
According to FluorideWorks.org, “studies show up to a 40 percent reduction in cavities following community water fluoridation.” If the evidence suggests that fluoride reduces cavities, why challenge it when there are so many clear benefits for our health?
There are many benefits to use fluoride including:
1. Reverse erosion
2. Fight gingivitis
3. Help establish long term dental health
4. Strengthen teeth
Wouldn’t you like to go to the dentist one day and not have to have a follow-up appointment because you need cavities filled? “YES!”
Well, drinking more fluoridated water out of your tap can help. Some bottled waters offer fluoridated water but make sure you look for it on the label.
If you’d like to learn more about why fluoride is important read, “Why is Fluoride So Important to Dentists in Howell, Michigan?” on our website.
However, some people are against fluoridated water. According to FluorideAlert.org, “fluoridation is unethical. Informed consent is standard practice for all medication, and one of the key reasons why most of Western Europe has ruled against fluoridation.” We live in a country where we have many freedoms, and this is just an example of something the people think they should be able to decide on for themselves.
