What Can You Do To Prevent White Marks on Teeth?
Fluorosis is a dental condition that appears during childhood. Here are a few things you should know if you believe your children are at risk.
– Monitor your children’s teeth for white or brownish spots, flecks, and lines.
– Fluorosis may develop where drinking water is treated with excessive amounts of fluoride, so keep an eye on fluoride levels in your area.
– Don’t let your kids swallow any products containing fluoride. That includes mouth rinses, toothpaste, and dental gels.
In addition to the above, don’t forget that your dentist is qualified to offer advice on how to prevent fluorosis and maintain a healthy smile.
