Get Your Fill of Fluoride

October 19, 2017 by Dr. Andrew Smyth

Adding fluoride to community water systems has been the most effective public health measure for preventing tooth decay, according to the American Dental Association. About 72 percent of the population connected to municipal water systems in the United States has fluoride in its water, so simply filling your water glass from the faucet can make it more likely you'll have healthy teeth. If your community's water isn't fluoridated or if you drink water from a well, you may need a fluoride supplement for better dental health.
