Can children have too much fluoride? My friend told me she's worried about fluorosis and excess fluoride for her children due to toothpaste and fluoride in the water. Is this a genuine concern and something I should be worried about?
YES : Yes children can have too much fluoride, but they may not! here is the low done. Since it was noticed over 60 years ago that children who grow up in areas where the water is naturally fluoridated had lower rates of tooth decay, and that their teeth were resistant to decay, we have been adding Fluoride to the water supply in an attempt to replicate this effect for all children. There are all sorts of factions who argue for and against the use of fluoride, but the facts speak for themselves. The dosage use in the water is one part per million (1ppm) and if other sources do not complicate the scenario the children should develop protection and not have the fluorosis about which you have expressed concern. Fluorosis can occur when the children have twice the dose 2ppm. The problem with children using fluoridated toothpaste is that if they swallow it they will be getting more than the idea amount. It is one more thing that mom's have to be concerned about but not worry about. There are some children's toothpastes that do not have Fluoride in them. I have added a link below.

The : The effects of mouth washes are, very, very minimal. Brushing and flossing are far more important. Worry about your child brushing and foisting properly. Most children up to age 7 or so cannot properly manipulate their mouths for proper rinsing. They just end up swallowing the stuff. Spend the time on brushing and flossing and if that is perfect, then you can rinse, or not. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Not to worry: Most communities in the US fluoridate the water supply, If fluoridated she is wasting her money.
