Fluoride is fantastic for preventing dental caries, but overuse is linked to controversy if ingested in very large amounts. Parents should be careful in storing fluorinated dental products away from children as it can be toxic. Using too much can cause fluorisis, where dental enamel developing under the gums is damaged, causing discoloration, pitting and white lines on the teeth. Consult with us at ‪Acharya Dental‬ regarding the right methods to use fluoride for your oral health.
