Exposição ao flúor e fluorose dental uma revisão de literatura

  1. 1. T he decline in dental caries revalence and incidence in the last two decades is eonsidered to be largely ~to ..th~wead use of fluoride. owever, the prevalence of dental fluorosis has increased simultane slv, The inerease is in the mild and very mild forms of fluorosis, both in fluoridated and in non- "fluoridated areas. A large arnount of epidemiologieal data demonstrates that the occurrenee of dental fluorosis is associated with exeessive fluoride intake throughout the period oftooth development. Multiple sources of fluoride intake have been identified. This review deseribes the condition and summarizes the recent literature on the risk faetors for dental fluorosis. Four major risk faetors have been eonsistently identified: use of fluoridated drinking water, fluoride supplements, fluoride dentifrice and infant formulas. In addition, some manufaetured ehildren foods and drinks may also be important contributors to total daily fluoride intake.
