A potent causative agent of dental flourosis: Fluoride

According to many studies pertaining to dental health a common concern is fluoride which is not stopping cavities and is causing discoloured teeth.//

This is a revelation of several studies to be presented at the American Association for Dental Research's annual meeting from March 8, 2006, in Orlando, Florida.

Some important findings and studies are as mentioned.

An Iowa Fluoride Study which followed children from birth, starting in 1991- 1995 found almost double the dental fluorosis in early erupting permanent teeth of 9 year-olds drinking optimally fluoridated water compared to children drinking sub-optimally fluoridated water (41% vs. 21%); but no less tooth decay.

Cavity prevalence increased by 15% in 2 to 5-year-olds, in surveys taken between 1988-1994 and 1999-2002 according to a US national study.

Breastfed children have fewer cavities than non-breastfed, as per another US study, even though breast milk has 100 times less fluoride than dentists claim is optimal to reduce cavities.

About half of 7 to14-year-old children from fluoridated Rochester, NY, have cavities. Latino children had significantly higher caries experience than African-American and Caucasian children, thus indicating that disparities exist among different ethnic groups even when the water is fluoridated.

According to Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President and General Counsel, “Today, fluoridation puts American children at risk of dental fluorosis without any benefit of less tooth decay and growing evidence links fluoride to hypersensitivities, bone damage, thyroid problems and more.”
