Community Water Fluoridation
Water fluoridation is one of the best examples of a public health preventive intervention at the community level. All infants and children who drink fluoridated water benefit from systemic ingestion by incorporating fluoride into their developing teeth, as well as from important topical effects. Unfortunately, many families live in communities without fluoridated water, and many use multiple or alternative sources of water (for example, bottled or processed water), complicating the delivery of fluoride to infants and children.
