America's Cavity Capitals named in survey

This should get a big smile from local dentists--Colorado Springs has been named in the Top 10 for best teeth by Men's Health Magazine.

Men's Health ranked 100 major U.S. cities based on community water fluoridation; the percentage of people who saw a dentist in the past year or have had their teeth extracted; the percentage of households using dental floss; money spent on oral hygiene products; and the number of dentist offices per capita.

Three Colorado Cities were included in the survey--Colorado Springs earned the grade of A-; Aurora got a B; Denver got a dismal C-.

The best teeth were in San Jose, while St. Louis had the worst.
