Fluoride concentration of bottled water and public water in Lebanon
Mounir Doumit, Lamia Abi Aad, Mouhamad MachmouchiIndian Journal of Dental Research 2019 30(3):375-380 Background and Aims: People in Lebanon turned to bottle water consumption because of its poor public water quality. In general, fluoride is known as dental caries preventive. A study in 1986 and two other national surveys in 1994 and 2004 showed that the concentration of fluoride in public Lebanese water was insignificant for the prevention of dental caries (less than 0.3 mg/L). The aim of the study was to measure the fluoride concentration in the highest selling and known commercial brands for bottled water in Lebanon, a...
