Fluoride and Your Drinking Water: What Do You Think?

In the June issue of Costco Connection, readers were asked to vote on whether they thought community drinking water should be fluoridated. Sixty-five percent of readers voted “yes” in favor of fluoridation. This reinforces what the ADA (American Dental Association) and the American Association of Orthodontics has said for nearly 70 years, that community water fluoridation plays a major role in improving the public’s oral health.

Using fluoride toothpaste after each meal is one of the most proven ways to help you stay cavity free. Fluoride makes teeth more resistant to the acids produced after eating or drinking and replaces minerals that are lost in the early stages of tooth decay. Fluoride is recommended for all ages.
