That's highly debatable. It is used in forming enamel when you're a young pup but notice that once enamel is gone it cannot reform. What does that tell one about the role of fluoride in adults? It is useless at best.

Home depot: http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-202530170/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053

I bought two and am counting on this rebate: http://www.polar-ray.com/assets/images/LED_Lighting_Rebates/Philips_Lighting_Rebate_Form.pdf

I also got 4 miles per $ with delta/Amex. Hence the $19.

I'm going to go out on a thin limb here and say I don't use toothpaste. At all. For over a year now.

I got "permission" from my dental hygienist to quit using fluoridated toothpaste as I haven't had a cavity in 20 years, and the toothpaste was irritating to the corners of my mouth. So I tried non-fluoridated toothpaste; same thing. Frustrated, I went without. I haven't looked back. I had my yearly checkup recently and was without cavities.

I find that I can get the same clean feeling without too much extra work; in fact it's easier to tell now when I've gotten all the plaque off my teeth because my tongue isn't numb from frankensteiny mint and I can more easily feel whether my teeth are smooth or still have some plaque.

No halitosis issues either in case anyone is wondering. Wish me luck for continued success.

Work the numbers and you'll find it makes sense to switch to LEDs sooner rather than later. I just picked up some 800 lumen 60 watt equivalents for $19 per which use 12.5 watts. If you use them 5 hours a day, they pay for themselves in the first year assuming your power costs $.10/kWh! I just replaced the two in the house that get used the most often so far.
