Is Your City Fluoridating Their Water? Here’s One That Didn’t

Posted on: April 21st, 2021 | Categories: Uncategorized

Although scientists have already provided ample evidence that fluoridating drinking water can help reduce dental carries (cavities), many cities still choose to forego fluoridation.

If your city is choosing to stop fluoridating their water or if the water isn’t currently being fluoridated, this story of what happened in Juneau, Alaska might be a wake-up call. When Juneau stopped adding fluoride to their water, they started seeing an increase in cavities in their population.

Even if the city did save the tax payers some money by no longer fluoridating the water, locals are now facing preventable dental health costs that might outweigh the cost of adding the fluoride.

That being said, people’s personal freedoms and choices need to be considered, and if people vote for stopping fluoridation, that’s their choice. But if you have concerns about the oral health of your children and yourself, be sure to talk to one of our dental professionals about it so that we can give you advice on how to deal with a lack of fluoridated water.
