In brief: None

There are no proven side effects of using Fluoride at normal doses.
Fluoride is an all natural mineral which occurs in the earth and ground water all over the world. It was discovered by accident that it makes teeth stronger due to a naturally high concentration of Fluoride in ground water in colorado around 1900. Humans have evolved drinking Fluoride since the beginning of time.
