    Cavities are the result of bacteria not being removed from your teeth and an a weak immune system. Fluoride is a poison.  The risks far outweigh the benefits.

    97% of Europe's water is not fluoridated. 

    Try Weleda Toothpastes.  Excellent, no fluoride and made in Germany.  Available in the US at many Health Food stores and online vitamin stores. It's my preferred brand.

    In moderation, fluoride can be good for the health of your teeth. Of course, there are risks if your consumption is too great but this will depend on the type of toothpaste you use (some have a higher concentration) and whether your local water supply does include elements of fluoride.

    For children, fluoride is not really recommended as their teeth are still developing and this could have more of a harmful effect than anything. If you want to be sure what is best for your own oral health then I would advise that you ask your dentist, who will be able to offer a more personal answer.

    Hope that helps.

    Interesting that you (cosmetic dentist) say that fluoride is NOT recommended for children, since the fluoride industry and their paid-off public official lackeys say that it is "for the children" (sob, sniffle).
