Adding fluoride to tap water could halve children’s tooth extractions, says study.
Tooth extractions have halved in areas where fluoride has been added to water, according to the study
A new paper published in the Community Dentistry and Oral Epidemiology suggests fluoridating tap water could dramatically improve children’s oral health.
It showed the number of people who need tooth extractions in areas where fluoride had been added to water was half of that in areas where it had not.
And it suggests there is no evidence to suggest it would harm health in other ways, as has previously been argued.
