Many communities in the US do fluoridate their water supply. Children (from families with enough money to see a dentist) typically receive additional fluoride treatments when they are young. As a result of both, I have read that children get far fewer cavities than they did when I was young.

I typically got several cavities a year and by the time I was 30, virtually all my teeth were falling apart. I only have 10 teeth left that have not been pulled or don't have a crown or bridge. My husband was losing all his teeth by his mid- 30s. In contrast, my children - who grew up with fluoridated water and fluoride treatments - rarely had cavities and have no problems at all with their teeth as they enter their 30s.

I don't know about fluoride tablets as an adult, though. Can't hurt. There are also fluoride toothpastes, though you might have to ask a dentist where to get one - don't know. I know they exist, but I've never seen one at the store.

Best of luck to you.
