Bottled water versus tap water
Bottled water versus tap water.
Australians who only drink bottled water are turning their backs on the benefits of water fluoridation, according to the Australian Dental Association (ADA) NSW.
Speaking on the topic recently, ADA (NSW) president Dr Sabrina Manickam said, “Drinking tap water with fluoride has added benefits for your oral health.” ADA NSW recommends tap water as the primary choice of drink for everyone.
It is the most hydrating drink.
Dr Manickam added: “Water fluoridation prevents dental decay in all ages.
It is a safe, effective and ethical way of providing benefit to everyone in the community, especially those who are disadvantaged.” Water fluoridation remains the cornerstone population health measure in preventing dental caries, having been endorsed and recommended by more than 150 scientific, health and political organisations throughout the world, including the World Health Organization.
