The major part of fluoride ingested is fixed on calcified tissues, mainly in bone tissue, and then is progressively but slowly recycled during bone remodeling. Thus, the measurement of bone fluoride content allows the determination of the extent of bone fluoride retention, and this parameter constitutes a useful complement to bone histology for the diagnosis of skeletal fluorosis and could also be used for the management of fluoride treatment of osteoporosis. A simple method is described to… CONTINUE READING
