Abstract


Although the systemic administration of fiuoride by water fluoridation may confer some benefit to children's teeth, this effect is small and is apparently due to a delay in the eruption of the testh together with a slight reduction in the solubility of the tooth enamel. On the other hand, fluoride-containing enamel may be more brittle, and therefore weaker, so that fluoride containing teeth may chip more easily and may wear down more rapidly. The effects of fluoride are not, however, confined to the teeth, but it can also affect the remainder of the body in various ways. It is concluded that there is no case for the fluoridation of water supplies.
