Recommendations for fluoride use in children. A review.

Author information

Bureau of Dental Health, New York State Department of Health, USA.


Fluoride has played a significant role in the improvement of the oral health of all Americans. Because of its effectiveness, cost and frequency of exposure, water fluoridation is the preferred method of delivery. Today, many products containing fluoride are available over the counter and as prescription items. The potential for exposure to multiple sources of fluoride has increased. Therefore, practitioners should prescribe fluoride therapy based on an understanding of patients' total exposure to fluoride and the need for additional amounts.
