The illness was most probably coincidental. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Sure: Highly unlikely unless you purposely eat the gel.. It would not be accidental. Estimated adult lethal dose is 5 to 10 grams of fluoride. Topical Fluoride strength is 1.23% by volume (0.0123).

The teaspoon or so you put in your mouth during application will not harm you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
