Fluorides in Dentistry

The adjustment of the fluoride level in community water sup- plies to optimal concentration is the most beneficial and in- expensive method of reducing the occurrence of caries.1 Epidemiologic data within the last half-century indicate reductions in caries of 55 to 60% and recent data still show caries reduction of approximately 25%, without significant enamel fluorosis, when domestic water supplies are fluoridated at an optimal level.2 Evidence accumulated from long-term use of fluorides has demonstrated that the cost of oral health care for children can be reduced by as much as 50%.3 These savings in health dollars accrue to private individuals, group purchasers, and government care programs. An even higher caries reduction can be obtained if the proper use of fluorides is combined with other dietary, oral hygiene, and preventive measures4 as prescribed by a dentist familiar with the child’s oral health and family history.
