Decision-making for national programs of community fluoride use
: Blackwell Synergy
Every community, region or country with a high or rising prevalence
of dental caries should implement a caries-preventive program that automatically
brings the benefits of systemic and topically applied fluoride to the entire population.
The fluoridation of community water supplies or salt fulfills the requirements
of providing safe, effective protection from dental caries at reasonable cost. The
use of dietary fluoride supplements or fluoridated milk does not meet the requirements
of a comprehensive national or community program because compliance
is poor or only selected age groups are targeted. Water fluoridation is ideal for
countries, regions or communities with many central water supplies or where
salt production or distribution is not centralized or easy to control.
