Too Much Of A Good Thing? Fluoride Good For Teeth, But Too Much Does This

2020-02-19 01:09:261 Oct 2018 01:53 AM EST

Fluoride helps prevent tooth day. But according to UPI, a new analysis has suggested that too much of it can actually negatively affect oral hygiene. A condition called fluorosis can damage to tooth enamel. Tooth enamel is the coating that protects teeth from chemicals in food and drinks that cause decay and, ultimately, cavities. Researchers have expanded their understanding of how fluorosis develops. Fluorosis occurs when children up to nine years of age -- the age at which teeth are forming -- are exposed to high levels of fluoride. It causes a discoloring -- usually yellowing -- of the tooth enamel. In general, the risk for fluoride over-exposure in the United States is low.
