When fluoride is removed, dental decay decreases or stays the same

Don’t let the fear-mongers scare you. As reported in the Calgary Herald newspaper article Calgary dentists report more cavities in kids after fluoride removed from water, the author Clara Ho makes it seem like after only two years of children not being exposed to the toxic chemical hydrofluorosilicic acid (fluoride), their teeth are starting to fall out.

But let’s look a little closer shall we?

By “Calgary Dentists”, Clara Ho actually means two Calgary Dentists. They are reporting that children are coming to their office “with bigger cavities than seen before” and ““Now we’re seeing again the horror stories in a younger population of children since they’ve taken the fluoride out,” Smith said, citing higher levels of decay in young children and even babies as young as 11 months.”

Higher tooth decay in babies as young as 11 months? A child’s first teeth only begin to erupt at around 6 months and now we are to believe that the removal of fluoride is the cause of increased tooth decay in babies based on one dentist’s observation?

Sorry Clara. Science does not work on a single observation. Now for the science.

In 2001, scientific studies were conducted by Maupomé et al in British Columbia, Canada to determine what effect the discontinuation of water fluoridation had on dental decay rates. They observed thousands of participants. The results? The BC communities that removed fluoride from their water supplies showed the same or lower levels of tooth decay compared to those that continued fluoridating.

In 2000, Kunzel, Fischer, Lorenz, and Brühmann released the results of a study Decline of caries prevalence after the cessation of water fluoridation in the former East Germany and found exactly what the title of the study says… when artificial fluoridation was stopped, dental decay rates decreased. The authors noted that “In contrast to the anticipated increase in dental caries following the cessation of water fluoridation in the cities Chemnitz and Plauen, a significant fall in caries prevalence was observed.”

If this is still not enough, the following chart from the World Health Organization on dental decay rates in fluoridated vs. non-fluoridated countries is revealing:

Dental Decay rates are decreasing in both countries that fluoridate their water supplies and countries that don't.

Dental Decay rates are decreasing in both countries that fluoridate their water supplies and countries that don’t.

Despite the fact that removing artificial fluoride from or never having it in public water supplies has absolutely no effect on dental decay rates, 90% + of the world has rejected it, and fluoride does have adverse health effects on the body and mind, institutes like the World Health Organization still endorse artificial fluoridation.

But if artificial fluoridation has no effect on our teeth, and the only reason we are told it is in the water is because of our teeth, what other reasons are there to continue this deadly practice?

  1. From your second article

    “the data provided additional support for the established fact of a caries reduction brought about by the fluoridation of drinking water (48% on average)”

    • Hi Jamie,

      Your comment is typical of those who try to distort or censor important information from the public. Perhaps you should read the entire article:

      While the data provided additional support for the established fact of a caries reduction brought about by the fluoridation of drinking water (48% on average), it has also provided further support for the contention that caries prevalence may continue to fall after the reduction of fluoride concentration in the water supply from about 1 ppm to below 0.2 ppm F.

      Unlike MPP Bob Delaney, this website is committed to transparency however if you name-call you will be banned.

      Thank you for visiting http://www.endfluoridetoronto.com . The truth shall prevail.

      • I would be very cautious applying the anecdotal observation of a single dentist to an entire city. An actual follow-up study is being done in Calgary as we speak measuring the real levels of dental decay since the cessation of fluoridation and I will post the results as soon I have them. In the meantime I ask why do Germans and Swedes have better teeth than Canadians without fluoridated water? Why do British Columbians, with less than 4% of the population drinking fluoridated water, have better teeth than Ontarians, where over 70% of the population drinks fluoridated water? Preventing tooth decay starts with brushing, flossing and restricting sugar intake. Drinking neurotoxic chemicals to “prevent tooth decay” is simply ridiculous.

  2. The objective is to aid patients keep their teeth healthy for a life time. And whether you need simple or complicated service for your entire dentition, the methods or procedure shall be consummated in a professional and expert manner or comfortment.

    • We are still waiting on the official results from Calgary however they are already late in releasing them so I would not hold my breath especially if they show that tooth decay has continued to decline.
