Fluoride Causes Dental Fluorosis – Should One Use Toothpaste With or Without Fluoride?
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).

Would you rather have drinking water without fluoride?We don't swallow the fluoride when we get a treatment at the dentist. Why should it be in drinking water? Is cavity protection worth the known health risks to fluoride, which some consider an industrial waste product?

If fluoride is harmful for us to swallow in our toothpaste, why is it allowed in our water?Most of the cities in American put fluoride in their water systems. The claim is it is for our teeth. The problem with this is when ingested can be very harmful to us. Which is why we are told not to swallow...
