Fluoridation fails as America's cavity crisis escalates
Instead of spreading less tooth decay across the land, fluoridation spread dental fluorosis (fluoride-discolored
teeth) into every nook and cranny of America. Even though the CDC
reports up to 60% of adolescents are afflicted with dental fluorosis,
51% of them have cavities.
Opposite to predictions, since fluoridation began in 1945:
Tooth decay crises occur in all fluoridated cities.
New dental professionals were created, e.g. dental therapists.
New dental schools opened.
Dental expenditures have gone up substantially, higher than the inflation rate.
Poor children's cavities are more prevalent, severe, occur earlier and more likely to be untreated.
Despite dental spending growth, 42% percent of adults and 4 million children with dental problems could not afford dental care.

Despite fluoridation 1/3 adults have active decay w dire consequences
The American Dental Association states the average adult has three or more decayed or missing teeth. An absence of good oral health practices can lead to many health problems, including dry mouth, excessive decay, gum disease or oral cancer. Untreated dental disease can lead to infection, damaged bones or nerves and tooth loss. Dental infections, if left untreated, can spread to other parts of the body. Severe gum disease is associated with chronic disease such as diabetes, heart disease and respiratory disease.

Fluoridation Fails: Hundreds show up for Catholic Charities free dental clinic
Twelve hours later, one woman was reclining in a dentist’s chair, getting a new tooth made of a synthetic composite. The other was heading home: The temporary clinic, which served 700 people Friday and Saturday, was unable to provide the treatment she needed, which involved multiple crowns and an abscess, without a specialized lab.
About 300 other adults were turned away over two days because of the overwhelming demand for dental care at the Mid-Maryland Mission of Mercy clinic. The clinic, at St. Vincent Pallotti High School, was sponsored by Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Washington and the Maryland Office of Oral Health.
