Viracept (Nelfinavir)

Fluorine exists in the body in compounds called fluorides. Minute amounts of fluoride enter into the complex calcium salts that form tooth enamel. The fluoride-containing calcium salt is more resistant, and tooth decay has decreased as much as 60 percent in communities where the water supply has contained sufficient fluoride. Fluorides may also be useful in maintaining bone structure. A lesser incidence of osteoporosis has been observed in persons living in areas with fluoridated water.
Fluoride is best provided in the water supply. Many major cities and hundreds of smaller communities now add 1 part fluoride to 1 million parts water (about 1 mg per quart). This inexpensive, safe, and effective public health measure for the protection of the teeth deserves the fullest public support. Alternatives to the use of a fluoridated community water supply are bottled fluoridated water, topical applications of stannous fluoride by a dentist together with use of fluoride toothpaste, or administration of fluoride tablets under a dentist’s supervision.
In some parts of the world natural supplies of drinking water contain over 1.5 parts fluoride per million parts of water. People who live in these areas have mottled teeth; that is, their teeth have a chalky white appearance and later become discolored. Such teeth are resistant to decay and no signs of other health changes have occurred in these people.
