Nope. Wouldn’t offset the damage, and too much fluoride isn’t good for you.

@zenvelo is right, too much fluoride is bad.

It would be, at best, absolutely pointless. Besides, there’s already flouride added to most municipal water systems.

It’s probably already in most soda at about the same concentration as municiple water supplies

Drinking Fluoride in a large quantity is a “No-No”, more is not better.
Trace amounts are in some water sources naturally, others have added it to the water supply.

I’m sure there’s some pseudo-science in there, but surely at least one point is valid.

I would imagine it might have a weird after taste. It’s best to switch to water with a slight natural flavour to it. We have a flavour water brand in Ireland called Volvic
