Dental fluorosis - Before and after 1What Is Dental Fluorosis?
Dental fluorosis is an effect that can occur on the protective area of your teeth (enamel) during the early development stages. It happens if the teeth are exposed to high doses of fluoride.

Who Can Be Effected?

This issue mainly happens during the very early stages of child development, from 3 months to 8 years old. In the majority of cases, it will be very minimal effects and it will barely be noticeable, with tiny specks or white streaks on the teeth that are affected.
In the most severe cases, teeth can become uneven, rough and even have brown marking discolouration.
If you have suffered from fluorisis as a child, the stains and spots can darken over time and will be permanent. However, we do offer cosmetic treatments that can be used to improve the staining, making it look more aesthetically pleasing.

How To Prevent Fluorosis

The most important steps to take is to limit your child intake of fluoride at a young age, and ensure to carefully read labels of foods, mouthwash and toothpaste to ensure they have low levels.

What Has Fluoride In It?

Fluoride can be found in a number of sources, which is why it is very important to be aware of where it can be found:
  • Some mouthwashes (check the ingredients to be sure)
  • Foods (a lot of processed and soy foods)
  • Water (depending on where you live, more fluoride will be found in the water – less developed countries tend to have higher amounts)
The early stages of a child’s development is very important to ensure there teeth grow naturally and healthily. During this stage it is important for your child to attend regular check ups with the dentist so warning signs can be spotted early on.

Now one dentist admits how fluoride is good for business.


Tamworth Borough Council in Staffordshire voted in March 2012 to support the continued fluoridation of local water supplies. This followed an intensive review of the benefits and safety of fluoridation by Tamworth’s Community and Wellbeing Scrutiny Committee, which culminated in a unanimous recommendation that the Council should endorse this public health measure. The review was called for by an independent Tamworth councillor who, with the backing of a West Midlands anti-fluoride group, had sought to generate doubts about the efficacy and safety of water fluoridation. In the event, the Council overwhelmingly rejected their arguments. Detailed evidence was presented by both sides to the Scrutiny Committee at an allday hearing, with Dr Peter Mansfield (who has also campaigned against the use of a single MMR vaccine for children) and retired general dental practitioner Tony Lees putting the anti-fluoride case. South Staffordshire consultant in dental public health Dr John Morris presented data to show how Tamworth children had benefited from fluoridation since it was introduced to the area between 1986 and 1988. Today, around 497,000 South Staffordshire residents are supplied with fluoridated water, including the 75,000 people who live in Tamworth.

  • Tamworth Dentist story now winging its way to all Staffs county councillors.

    I should comment on that other "Tamworth Scrutiny". It took a Constitutional petition (which I organised) to force this scrutiny.

    Then -

    1. They first kicked me off the scrutiny committee, which I had been on for 9 years.

    2. Tried to restrict debate to the York Review only.

    3. Were most unhelpful to the petition supporters, with late or as little information as possible.

    4. Refused to let me as a councillor, nor any member of the public, to address this travesty of a scrutiny.

    5. Held their "decision debate" in complete secrecy (incredibly not even non-scrutiny councillors were allowed in!).

    6. Came up with a policy to support fluoride - within which was the ludicrous statement that the ONLY chemical legally allowed to provide the fluoridation (hexafluorosalicic acid) was NOT used! I fell about laughing, and chided them in full council, when I saw that most basic fact of fluoridation was so pathetically wrong.

    What it meant was that they hadn't a clue; didn't care they hadn't a clue; were determined to stay in utter ignorance; and prepared to do whatever was necessary to keep themselves in the dark and the fluoride flowing .... presumably because the nice dentist told them it was good for teeth!?

    That's the political world of fluoridation. They thought they were being "clever" - playing silly political games! They should be ashamed!
