ABSTRACT
This article discusses the proceedings of the workshop "Changing Patterns of Fluoride Intake" at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, North Carolina from April 23-25, 2008. issues relating to the epidemiology of fluorosis as it relates to the proliferation of fluoride supplements as a means of encouraging preventive dental health. The relationship between tooth eruption and the efficacy of fluoride supplements is explored.

    Salt fluoridation is a systemic form of fluoride supplementation, leaving it to the consumer whether he wants fluoride supplements or not, but thereafter not requiring special dependability for daily compliance. Most German drinking water has low fluoride concentrations. The estimated fluoride...

    The article presents the consensus statements on the use of fluoride, with the questions associated to it, during the "Fluoride: Seen from Different Perspectives" workshop in November 2000. It notes that a new definition of caries risk assessment is necessary. A question on whether high-risk...

    Although the anti-caries effects of standard fluoride (F) toothpastes are well established, their use by preschoolers (2- to 5-year-olds) has given rise to concerns regarding the development of dental fluorosis. Thus, a widespread support of low F toothpastes has been observed. The aim of this...
