You are absolutely correct on all points.
I suppose I should have been a little more accurate, but I felt that the 'less than 1 point' statement would be sufficient for the discussion (and I
did have a round of laziness as a factor
). There is also the observation that the 'normal' pH range of the human mouth falls slightly below the
pH level untreated enamel can withstand, while it does not fall below the level that fluoridated enamel can. So while I still stand by my somewhat
inaccurately-phrased statement, I must also admit that the relatively minor change in susceptibility to acidity is still a change may accomplish much
if one's oral pH level regularly remains at the lower end of that normal range.
I personally am against the use of fluoride, as it appears that over-dosage is a common occurrence, and over-dosage carries much more sever problems
than cavities. But it's actually refreshing to be caught in something.
I salute you, sir!
