Oral health falls under Governor John Hickenlooper's Top 10 Winnable Battles for health in Colorado. Consuming fluoride in water is one safe and inexpensive way to help prevent dental . Community water fluoridation is the adjustment of fluoride in drinking water to reach a level that can help to reduce tooth decay. In Australia, community water fluoridation programs are considered a safe and effective way of reducing tooth decay across the population. Tooth decay is one of the most common health problems in Australia.

Studies show fluoridated water prevents at least 25 percent of tooth decay in children and adults, even with the use of other fluoride products. Community water fluoridation has proven to be a safe, effective and cost-saving public health measure for preventing tooth decay. The optimal level is the concentration of fluoride in drinking water that provides the optimal dental benefits while minimizing the risk of dental fluorosis. In Canada, the optimal level of fluoride in the water is milligrams per litre (mg/L) – which can also be described as parts per million (ppm).

Water fluoridation is the controlled addition of fluoride to a public water supply to reduce tooth decay, and is handled differently by country. Fluoridated water has fluoride at a level that is effective for preventing cavities; this can occur naturally or by adding fluoride. Fluoridated water operates on tooth surfaces: in the mouth it creates low levels of fluoride in saliva, which . Fluoridated water is credited as one of the reasons why Americans' dental health has improved over the years. Dental fillings, for instance, have decreased 50 percent since Fluoridated water protects against cavities and root caries – a progressive erosion of adult root surfaces caused by gum recession – and helps remineralize early.

Now, six decades later and after most countries have rejected the practice, more than 70 percent of Americans, as well as million people worldwide, are drinking fluoridated water.

The State Board of Health, which oversees the state’s fluoridation of drinking water rule, has revised the rule to reflect this new standard.

The new rule was adopted by the Board on March 9, and went into effect May 9, Water fluoridation, is the controlled addition of fluoride to the water supply, with the aim of reducing the prevalence of dental caries.
