The benefits of Fluoride in Water

The British Dental Association has shown their support to introduce fluoridation in parts of England.

There is a vast amount of evidence demonstrating that fluoridation in the water supply is a very safe and effective method of reducing rate of decay in the population. Fluoride remineralises (ie strengthens) the enamel on the teeth and helps reduce the numbers of bad bacteria that stick on teeth.

An example of how beneficial water fluoridation is shown by Birmingham’s low rates of decay. Birmingham is a fluoridated city and the children there have half the rate of tooth decay than children in the non fluoridated city of Southampton.
