  17. Flouride Rinses to Prevent Cavities (Udent.com)
      "The process of tooth decay causes demineralization or loss of minerals. With the aid of fluorides, minerals can be incorporated back into the lesion through remineralization. Both the demineralization and remineralization processes are continuously ongoing within the tooth. When remineralization overcomes the demineralization process, caries (decay) can actually be reversed and the lesion repaired. The remineralization process also significantly increases the size of the enamel crystals. These larger crystals are more resistant to acid attack than even natural enamel."

      However, excess flouride in the water supply can be harmful. "Ingestion of water having a fluoride concentration of two or three times greater than the recommended level can produce white flecks and chalky opaque areas. Consumption of water having a fluoride concentration of four times the recommended level can cause brown, pitted and corroded areas." Visitors sometimes misspell as floride. 2-04

  19. Hospital-Acquired Infections Prevention (Centers for Disease Control)
      "Part II (this report) contains recommendations for environmental infection control in health-care facilities, describing control measures for preventing infections associated with air, water, or other elements of the environment. These recommendations represent the views of different divisions within CDC's National Center for Infectious Diseases and the Healthcare Infection Control Practices Advisory Committee (HICPAC), a 12-member group that advises CDC on concerns related to the surveillance, prevention, and control of health-care--associated infections, primarily in U.S. health-care facilities. In 1999, HICPAC's infection-control focus was expanded from acute-care hospitals to all venues where health care is provided (e.g., outpatient surgical centers, urgent care centers, clinics, outpatient dialysis centers, physicians' offices, and skilled nursing facilities). The topics addressed in this report are applicable to the majority of health-care facilities in the United States. This report is intended for use primarily by infection-control practitioners, epidemiologists, employee health and safety personnel, engineers, facility managers, information systems professionals, administrators, environmental service professionals, and architects. Key recommendations include"

      * infection-control impact of ventilation system and water system performance

      * establishment of a multidisciplinary team to conduct infection-control risk assessment

      * use of dust-control procedures and barriers during construction, repair, renovation, or demolition

      * environmental infection-control measures for special areas with patients at high risk

      * use of airborne-particle sampling to monitor the effectiveness of air filtration and dust-control measures

      * procedures to prevent airborne contamination in operating rooms when infectious tuberculosis (TB) patients require surgery

      * guidance regarding appropriate indications for routine culturing of water as part of a comprehensive control program for legionellae

      * guidance for recovering from water-system disruptions, water leaks, and natural disasters (e.g., flooding)

      * infection-control concepts for equipment using water from main lines (e.g., water systems for hemodialysis, ice machines, hydrotherapy equipment, dental unit water lines, and automated endoscope reprocessors)

      * environmental surface cleaning and disinfection strategies with respect to antibiotic-resistant microorganisms

      * infection-control procedures for health-care laundry

      * use of animals in health care for activities and therapy

      * managing the presence of service animals in health-care facilities

      * infection-control strategies for when animals receive treatment in human health-care facilities and

      * a call to reinstate the practice of inactivating amplified cultures and stocks of microorganisms onsite during medical waste treatment." 3-05
