All cases of fluoride ingestion in children younger than 12 years old reported to the Rocky Mountain Poison Center between January 1 and December 31, 1986, were retrospectively reviewed. Eighty-seven cases were identified. Eighty-four cases involved accidental ingestion of dental fluoride products in the home (tablets, drops, rinses) in children 8 months to 6 years old. Two older children (8 and 9 years old) became symptomatic after fluoride treatment by a dentist. A 13-month-old child died… 
Acute fluoride poisoning from a public water system.
TLDR
Inspections of public water systems and monitoring of fluoride concentrations are needed to prevent outbreaks of fluoride poisoning.
Current Regulations and Recommendations Concerning Water Fluoridation, Fluoride Supplements, and Topical Fluoride Agents
TLDR
The safety of dental fluoride products is discussed, primarily with respect to the risk of dental fluorosis due to chronic ingestion of these products by pre-school children, and no change is indicated in the optimal fluoride level for water fluoridation.
Fatality due to Sodium Fluoride Ingestion—Suicide or Accident?
TLDR
A case where an educated research scholar allegedly died due to accidental ingestion of NaF is presented, and it is highly unlikely that it can be mistakenly ingested by an educated young man, after dissolving it in tea in place of sugar.
Fluoride supplementation during pregnancy does not reduce caries in offspring
TLDR
The correct answer is ‘No’: fluoride supplementation during pregnancy does not reduce the incidence of caries in offspring and fluoride has beneficial effects only after the tooth eruption takes place through a topical mechanism.
Accidents inChildhood of Cases in the Einergency and Hospitalized Cases Room
TLDR
The most common non-traffic accident in childhood was foreign body ingestion or inhalation, and the gastrointestinal tract was the most commori site of foreign body ingested or inhaled.
Calcium Neutralizes Fluoride Bioavailability in a Lethal Model of Fluoride Poisoning
TLDR
Calcium chloride administered simultaneously with sodium fluoride reduces the bioavailability of fluoride poisoning in a mouse model, and the equivalent dose of magnesium sulfate does not significantly decrease fluoride bioavailability.
The Fluoride Debate: The Pros and Cons of Fluoridation
TLDR
The different aspects of fluoridation, their effectiveness in dental caries prevention and their risks are reviewed; health-care professionals and the public need guidance regarding the debate around fluoridation.
Analysis of Phone Calls Regarding Fluoride Exposure made to New Jersey Poison Control Center from 2010 to 2012.
TLDR
Findings in this study suggest that levels of fluoride in available commercial products will not produce life-threatening events, even if taken in doses higher than recommended.
