Abstract: Similar to that which occurred in most developed countries, dental caries have shown a significant decline in Brazil over the last two decades. Water fluoridation, expansion of preventive programs at schools, and especially, the widespread use of fluoride dentifrice are discussed as factors related to this reduction in caries. Data from epidemiological surveys and historical facts are presented to support the importance of fluoride dentifrices to the current caries prevalence in Brazil.

A fluoretação das águas de abastecimento público, a expansão de programas preventivos nas escolas e principalmente o uso abrangente de dentifrícios fluoretados no país são apresentados como fatores relacionados a essa redução de cárie. Dados de levantamentos epidemiológicos e fatos históricos são apresentados para corroborar a importância dos dentifrícios fluoretados na atual prevalência de cárie no Brasil
