Fluoride helps to rebuild and strengthen the tooth’s surface, or enamel.Water fluoridation prevents tooth decay by providing frequent and consistent contact with low levels of fluoride.
For adults, drinking water with fluoride supports tooth enamel, keeping teeth strong and healthy.
The return on investment for community water fluoridation varies with size of the community, increasing as the community size increases.
Community water fluoridation is cost-saving, even for small communities.
The estimated return on investment for community water fluoridation (including productivity losses) ranged from in small communities of 5,000 people or less, to in large communities of 200,000 people or more.
However, approximately 100 million Americans still do not have access to water with fluoride.Your access to the NCBI website at gov has been temporarily blocked due to a possible misuse/abuse situation involving your site.
