ABSTRACT
The article discusses the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry's guidelines for the proper use of fluorides for the prevention and control of dental caries. It mentions that optimizing the fluoride contents in water supplies is a highly effective public health measure because it is effective, inexpensive, and does not require conscious cooperation of individuals. It states that fluoride supplements for all children should consider a fluoride deficient of less than 0.6 parts per million (ppm). It also suggests that before supplements are prescribed the dentists should determine first the fluoride concentration of the patient's drinking water.
