You can strengthen your teeth by using fluoride to help resist cavities. An overload amount of Fluoride can cause a chalky white to brown discoloration of your permanent teeth leading to dental fluorosis.
Help your child prevent getting dental fluorosis by being cautious of sources of fluoride as it is simple for children to swallow a lot of it.
For infants under 6 months of age, be sure to not give them fluoride vitamins, tablets, or drops.
For a child over 6 months, provide supplements to them only on recommendation from a dental professional.
Your infant’s formula that is concentrated with powder contains an abundance of fluoride within it. Other foods include, cereals, chicken products for infants, or any soy-based formula. Next time when you are out grocery shopping for your child, be sure to know what is inside their food.
