Infants who ingest high amounts of fluoride can be at risk of dental fluorosis. The authors analyzed the fluoride concentration of 238 commercially available infant foods. Fluoride concentrations ranged from 0.01 to 8.38 micrograms of fluoride per gram, with the highest fluoride concentrations found in infant foods containing chicken. Infant foods, especially those containing chicken, should be considered when determining total fluoride intake.
Fluoride levels in UK infant milks.
AIM: To provide a comprehensive report of fluoride concentration in UK infant milks and estimate their contribution to daily fluoride intake. METHODS: A total of 60 formula milk products available commercially or within a hospital environment were analysed, along with eight pasteurised cow's milk samples. Formula milk products requiring preparation were reconstituted with
Fluoride retention in infants living in fluoridated and non-fluoridated areas: effects of weaning.
Limited knowledge is available on total fluoride exposure, excretion and retention in infants, despite the first year of human life being the critical period for dental development and risk of dental fluorosis. This study investigated total daily fluoride intake (TDFI), excretion (TDFE) and retention (TDFR) in infants living in fluoridated
Fluoride concentration in commonly consumed infant juices
PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to measure the fluoride concentration in the most commonly consumed, commercially available infant fruit juices and to determine if a significant difference existed among various juice flavors and brands. METHODS: Ninety samples of different flavors from three infant juice manufacturing companies were analyzed using
Distribution of fluoride to human breast milk following intake of high doses of fluoride
The present study demonstrates that, in spite of the high fluoride dose administered to the mother (11.25 mg), the child receives a maximum dose of 30 ug fluoride/day, or 0.2% of the dose given to the mother. This is only 3% of the dose compared with the daily fluoride dose
The Role of Fluoride in the Prevention of Tooth Decay
KEYWORDS • Dental caries • Dental decay • Oral health • Fluorides • Primary prevention • Secondary prevention • Children KEY POINTS • Fluoride is the key to prevention of tooth decay. • There are multiple fluoride modalities. • Effectiveness and safety of fluoride depend on dose and concentration. • Individual level
