A new article published in The Scientific World Journal has doctors, researchers, and health agencies from around the world reconsidering the potential harm caused by fluoridated public water.
Water fluoridation is a controversial topic. On one side, the pro-fluoride lobby insists fluoride is essential in preventing widespread tooth decay. Fluoride proponents believe the mineral strengthens tooth enamel, making it more difficult for acid-producing plaque to cause cavities and dental caries.
Baby water with fluoride claims to help children develop strong and healthy teeth. Studies by the Harvard School of Public Health claim otherwise, calling fluoride a potentially toxic mineral that seems to cause “chemical brain drain” in children (i). Nestlé, the leading brand behind the new fluoride water for babies, must now answer serious questions about fluoride and children’s health as the U.S. Court of Appeals has agreed to hear oral arguments from a mother whose daughter allegedly developed dental fluorosis as a result of the fluoridated bottled water.

Despite no clinical evidence to support that the mineral helps to reduce tooth decay, most communities in the United States still have water that is treated with fluoride. Over time, fear of tooth decay and gum disease has led to an explosion of fluoride toothpastes, mouth rinses, and special enamel treatments that purportedly improve oral health. Contrary to conventional wisdom, Americans are experiencing fluoride overload that is causing increased rates of fluorosis, arthritis, and other serious illnesses. This guide has been created to spread awareness for the dangers of fluoride, and to help consumers reduce exposure to this dangerous mineral by avoiding fluoride in popular beverages, fruits, vegetables, and other groceries.

This February, Assure A Smile raises awareness for children’s oral health needs. According to studies published by the Surgeon General, American children suffer from chronic tooth decay at alarming numbers, predisposing the nation’s youth to serious health issues. In the short run, high rates of tooth decay can lead to gum disease, infection, and gingivitis. Long term, however, the bacteria that causes gum disease has been found to also cause heart disease and increase the risk of stroke.
Cosmetic dentistry focuses on making positive changes to the teeth and oral tissues. Unfortunately, patients sometimes see cosmetic dental procedures as unnatural, artificial, or unnecessary. An overwhelming amount of research suggests otherwise, indicating that cosmetic procedures can actually spur far-reaching improvements in holistic health. It’s easy to see how cosmetic enhancements like bonds, dental implants, and orthodontics improve the structure, alignment, and physical health of the mouth. But studies also show cosmetic procedures help patients to live healthier and happier lives by providing less obvious improvements to mental and emotional well being.
