Introduction: The prevention of tooth erosion, progressive and irreversible loss of hard dental tissue due to the chemical process without bacterial involvement, can be mediated by the use of fluoride compounds with incorporation of titanium. The Hypothesis: The addition of titanium tetrafluoride (TiF4) to public water supply is an efficient and economical alternative for the management of dental erosion. Evaluation of the Hypothesis: Several studies show that TiF4, in gel or varnish forms, has a significant effect on the prevention of dental erosion, so that the increase of this compound in public water supply would contribute to a greater comprehensiveness of its protective effects on tooth erosion. The addition of TiF4 in public water supply is an effective and economical alternative for the prevention of dental erosion, contributing to a greater comprehensiveness of the protective effects of this compound.
