I live in the UK and my family have always drunk tap water which has added fluoride. Bottled water seems to me to be an expensive con. Surely US water is as pure as in the UK?

So scary. Thankfully, there are a few things people can do to help their children's smiles stay healthy. Drink more water and cut out sodas, sport's drinks, and energy drinks when possible. Also, always brush and floss each day. Don't forget checkups either! If your kid has cavities, you dentist can provide restoration. You can find common examples at my website: http://cerritosdentalsurgery.com

Very sad, especially considering how easy it would be to prevent cavities. Here is an example of the children's dental care your dentist will typically provide (from my website) http://jamesstewartdds.com/livonia-general-de... . Basically, brushing, flossing, and routine checkups and cleanings go a long towards maintaining a healthy smile.
