1969: The scare about the purity of water supply
During the early sixties it was decided that fluoride was to be added to the nation’s water supply in order to reduce tooth decay. A number of people were fearful of some harmful side effect. As I understand it this is no longer generally the case but fluoride is being added to toothpaste. Some water companies are still adding fluoride into the water that comes into our homes.
Moreover, I would think that dentures don’t really need that kind of protection.
