CDC asks for comments on new fluoride level proposal
from Dentistry Today
For more than 70 years, fluoride has been added to community water systems to prevent tooth decay and improve oral health. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fluoride works best at levels of 0.7 mg/liter. Now the agency is seeking comments on its proposed recommended range of 0.6 to 1.0 mg/liter, which would still maximize prevention of tooth decay while minimizing the possibility of dental fluorosis.
