    The list of the cities with the worst and best teeth is out and San Diego didn’t do too badly. 

    Men's Health Magazine took a look at communities with fluoride in the water and the percentage of people who saw a dentist during the past year. It also took into account the percentage of residents who have had teeth taken out, households using dental floss and how much was spent on oral hygiene products.

    St. Louis has the dubious number one distinction of worst teeth in America, with a grade of 'F'. 

    San Diego ranks 70th, with a B-minus grade.

    The best teeth are found in San Jose. The Northern California city got an 'A plus’.
