ABSTRACT
The article presents relationship between area deprivation and anticaries benefit of an oral health programme providing free fluoride toothpaste to young children. A low-fluoride dentifrice gave measurable benefit only in the most deprived groups, but a high-fluoride dentifrice improved health in less deprived groups as well. In 9 health districts in the north-west of England, 3,731 children completed a randomized clinical trial from age 1 to 5 years, with two groups receiving dentifrices containing 1,450 or 440 ppm fluoride sent to them by post, and a comparison group who were given no dentifrice.
