    Dude, have you ever been to Britain? Europe has many strengths, but dentistry, especially the cosmetic kind, isn't one of them.

    I use a special toothpaste that you can only get through a dentist or with special permission in a chemist. It has a lot of fluoride (5000 ppm). It says to spit it out at the end though not to wash your mouth out.

    Dude, have you ever responded to an OECD study with anything but an anecdote... (and yes I have been to Britain, my ex was English).

    Dude, have you heard of this thing, I think it's called "humour"?

    Dude, have you heard of this thing, I think it's called "living abroad for a couple of years resulting in experience surpassing anecdotal evidence"?

    And duuude, have you ever considered that your precious studies might be biased? In the matter at hand, Britain is ranked in the same prime spot as Germany... which doesn't fluoridate its drinking water.

    Finally, I happen know two people who work for the OECD... and they aren't exactly beacons of competence, let alone actual thought.

    Austrian humour? No never heard of it.

    Are you the only one who's lived overseas for a couple of years? My memory must be failing me... While I was living overseas for several years I don't recollect looking at every passerby's mouth.

    Coming from a New Zealander, that's hardly surprising.

    My apologies. I tend to forget that most people are too busy with themselves to notice such things.

    You mean you lived in a city of 4 million people for several years and you looked in everyone's mouth? You do have interesting pastimes.

    Thanks, I get that a lot.

    I've lived all over Britain for several years and in a couple of other countries also, so I think I've got a good sample...

    I don't have any issues with decay, staining is my big worrywart.

    In the US they specially promote fluoride (and fluoride mouth rinse) to children.

    Some argue that avoiding fluoride is far better for teeth health; that fluoride stuns the healthy regrowth of the teeth (that teeth basically heal and regrows enamel much like growing fingernails or skin.) I've actually brushed less and have pretty much drank non-fluoridated water for several years now (using a RO filter and reconstituting using mineral concentrate as otherwise you can create greater health concerns by not getting minerals in diet.) Flossing and avoiding plaque (and eating certain foods will brush the teeth without needing a toothbrush.) Decay mostly comes from certain kinds of foods that get lodged in between the teeth, and due to poor hygiene (in addition to overall health.)
