In brief: Small amounts good
Small amounts of topical Fluoride help make teeth stronger. Large amounts of systemic Fluoride are not healthy.
The key is finding the right balance for your child depending on their age, and risk for tooth decay. Yoour child's pediatric dentist can help you decide what amount is right for your child.

In brief: Proper mix is key
The proper mix of both forms of fluoride (topical and systemic) are available.
Your pediatrician can help you assess whether your child is receiving adequate levels of fluoride.
