Most of us know that drinking fluoridated water helps reduce the risk of cavities. But many questions remain. Can I get too much fluoride? Here in Arizona, most of us drink some type of filtered water. If so, does that mean I don't get enough fluoride? We hope to clarify some of the murky water surrounding this issue. The American Dental Association, American Academy of Pediatrics and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry have made recommendations on the fluroide ion level in drinking water based on age.
