We'd still need to get fluoride from somewhere.

But, related to your question, I just came across this article today saying that you can also get too much fluoride, and it can damage teeth and bones!
WASHINGTON (AP) - The high levels of fluoride that occur naturally in some drinking water can cause tooth and bone damage and should be reduced, the National Research Council said Wednesday.

The study did not analyze the benefits or risks of adding fluoride to drinking water. Instead it looked at the current maximum limit of 4 milligrams per liter. Approximately 200,000 people live in communities where that level occurs naturally in water.
