Application of fluoride allows at least a reduction of 65% of cavities since maintained the continuity and regularity of the levels of fluoride in water

The state of Paraná celebrates 55 years of water fluoridation with virtually zero index of decayed, missing and filled teeth (DMFT) in the age group 6-9 years. The information is from the Sanitation Company of Paraná (SANEPAR).

The last evaluation in 1992 from the Federal University of Paraná showed that at that time, after three and a half decades of continuous application of fluoride to reduce the rate reached 75.4%. A result that had already reached 39.4% in the first decade of application.

The state capital was the first in Brazil to have this benefit. The process of fluoridation began in 1958, the Water Treatment Plant Tarumã in Curitiba. According to technical and chemical responsible for surveillance and control of water quality SANEPAR, Pippa Kulcheski, fluoridation is the most efficient collective method for the control and prevention of dental caries.

Water fluoridation chemicals generates costs, operation care units and the 60,000 analyzes. About 52 000 analyzes are made directly in sewage treatment plants and more than 8000 in the network of water distribution. Every process has a monthly cost of £ 650,000.

According to the Ministry of Health, the application of fluoride provides at least a 65% reduction of caries since maintained the continuity and regularity of the levels of fluoride in water.
