Fluoridated Water Good For Adults And Children

Fluoridated Water Prevents Tooth Decay 

The March, 2013, ADA News, references a study published online in the Journal of Dental Research, that showed that adults who spent more than 75% of their lifetime living in communities with fluoridated water had 30% less tooth decay compared to adults who had lived less than 25% of their lifetime there.  A new study, conducted by the Univ. of North Carolina and the Univ. of Adelaide, Australia, showed strong evidence that fluoridated water provides dental health benefits to adults, even if they didn't have access to it as children.

The study analyzed 3,779 adults aged 15 and older, between 2004 and 2006 and found reduced tooth decay with exposure to fluoridated water.
