Too Much Fluoride In Our Water?

The recommendation changed from an average of 1.2ppm to .7 parts per million of Fluoride in the water with the maximum now being 1.2ppm. Most local water supplies were at 1.0 parts per million of Fluoride before this.  As for people who have Prader-Willi syndrome, normal drinking water with Fluoride is fine. Parents need to watch what is in bottled water because most have no Fluoride and that can lead to more decay.  Because of the diminished salivary flow, people with Prader-Willi need at least the minimum of Fluoride to protect their teeth not less. - Dr. Thomas Hughes, DDS Wisconsin General Dentist and Parent of Sarah w/PWS
