Is fluoride safe for my child?
Fluoride supplies tooth enamel with important nutrients and minerals. Toothpaste and mouthwashes often contain fluoride, but also your communities’ water supply may also contain fluoride so you will need to consider where your child is getting fluoride and consult your dentist about what levels are best for your child. Too much fluoride can cause Fluorosis where white or brown marks appear on the surface or your child’s teeth. While fluorosis isn’t dangerous, it is a signal that you can reduce the amount of fluoride your child is getting.
