Risks w/out Fluoridated Water

  • Increase in caries prevalence/experience (Lopez, et al., 2010, and Harris, et al., 2009, and Spencer, et al., 1996)

  • Increase in socio-economic inequalities (Kumar J.V, 2008, and Armfield, 2005)

    • Mainly evident in lowest SES groups

  • Increase in treatment expenditure (Pitts, 2004)

    • Preventive treatment more cost effective than operative treatment (eg: fluoride vs. restorations)
