WHAT IS FLUOROSIS AND HOW DID MY CHILD GET IT?
Fluorosis shows up as multiple snow-white specks or a brownish stain on permanent teeth. Your child may have ingested too much fluoride during the years when his teeth were forming. The excess can come from swallowing too much fluoride toothpaste (kids often like the way it tastes), drinking canned or bottled drinks that contain fluoridated water, and taking too many of the fluoride drops or tablets prescribed for infants.
Your water supply also may have contained high levels of fluoride, which added to the problem. As a precaution, have your water supply checked. To find out about at-home testing of your tap water, call 1-800-445-3386, or go to www.omniiproducts.com. Fluoride test kits from this vendor cost $16, including postage.
