Abstract: A review of world knowledge useful in selecting, implementing, and monitoring an effective fluoridation scheme for the promotion of oral health. The book opens with a review of research aimed at determining the level of fluoride ingestion necessary to obtain maximum protection with minimum risk of producing mild forms of dental fluorosis. Other chapters assess global trends in the incidence of dental caries and elaborate a number of practical guidelines and strategies for implementing fluoridation. A wide choice of alternative methods is presented, from community fluoridation of water supplies or sat to various predominantly topical forms of administration. For each method, readers are given full details on logistics, implementation, technical and economic aspects, evaluation and safety, and legal considerations
