Fluoride will be added to tap water in Southampton after health bosses voted through the plans despite protests.
It is the first time a health trust in England, rather than water companies, has been allowed to introduce fluoridation under new laws.
The idea has proved controversial with 72% of 10,000 respondents in a public consultation opposing the plan.

There is a clear association between gum disease and heart disease. A 2004 study found that 91 percent of patients with cardiovascular disease also suffered from moderate to severe periodontal disease (Geerts SO et al 2004). While people with gum disease have a 25 percent greater risk of heart disease than those with healthy gums, researchers have only recently begun to uncover possible causes for this link. Researchers now believe that gum disease, which is inflammatory, causes the release of pro-inflammatory chemicals into the bloodstream, which triggers a systemic inflammatory response. Atherosclerosis is also an inflammatory disease, and many of the same factors that increase risk for heart disease also increase risk for gum disease.
