New study shows kids with access to fluoridated water have fewer cavities

A new study published in the Journal of Dental Research has found “U.S. children and adolescents with greater access to fluoridated drinking water are less likely to experience dental decay.” For the study, researchers from Maryland, North Carolina, and the US Census Bureau examined “information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Water Fluoridation Reporting System and the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys from 1999-2004 and 2011-2014.”
