What is dental fluorosis?
Dental fluorosis is a condition that develops when children under age 8 consume too much fluoride.
This excess fluoride makes white spots on their developing adult teeth. Although dental fluorosis
changes the way teeth look, it does not affect the structure or health of the teeth. To avoid fluorosis,
it's important to teach your children to spit out toothpaste and not swallow it.
Fluoride treatments are a safe and effective way to keep your teeth healthy.
