ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry's (AAPD) policy on the use of fluoride. It notes that the AAPD asserts that fluoride offers an effective and safe means of decreasing dental caries. It mentions that the most beneficial and inexpensive means for fluoride administration is to adjust to fluoride level in community water supplies as seen in the epidemiologic data which depicts the decrease of dental caries by 55 to 60 percent when domestic water supplies are being fluoridated at an optimal level. It cites that the AAPD endorses the adjustment of fluoride content in domestic water supply, does not support the use of prenatal fluoride supplements and encourages appropriate use of topical fluoride varnish.
