Drinking water with fluoride helps prevent tooth decay. However, if your family drinks bottled water, you may be missing out on those benefits. That’s because many bottled waters do not contain fluoride. If fluoride isn’t listed on the label, consumers may contact the bottler to learn if their bottled water contains fluoride.
Also, if you use a home water filter and bottle your own water, you may be removing the fluoride from your tap water. Visit the ADA Seal page for a list of water filters that do not remove fluoride from tap water.
