The EAPD strongly endorses that the daily use of fluoride should be a major part of any comprehensive preventive program for the control of dental caries in children. Regardless of the type of program, community or individually based, the suggested use of fluoride must be balanced between the estimation of caries risks and the possible risks for toxic effects of the fluorides. Such a preventive program should be re-evaluated at regular intervals and adapted to a patient's needs and risks. For… Expand
Guidelines on the use of fluoride for caries prevention in children: an updated EAPD policy document.
TLDR
The EAPD strongly endorses the daily use of fluoride as a major part of any comprehensive programme for the prevention and control of dental caries in children, regardless of the type of programme, community or individually based. Expand

The history of public health use of fluorides in caries prevention
TLDR
The role of fluoride in public health prevention has changed in accordance with the knowledge about the fluoride cariostatic mechanism, and the most important pre-eruptive effect of fluorides was supplemented by the post eruptive effect. Expand

Systemic versus Topical Fluoride
The actual mechanism of fluoride action is still a subject of debate. A dogma has existed for many decades, that fluoride has to be ingested and acts mainly pre-eruptively. However, recent studiesExpand
Evidence-based Effectiveness of Topical Fluorides
TLDR
The paper concludes by considering the evidence and rationale to recommend other sources of fluoride, in addition to fluoride dentifrice, as well as other important implications for research and practice. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that by using fluoride toothpastes appropriately, the benefits can be maximised and the risks of fluorosis minimised. Expand
Risk factors associated with fluorosis in a non-fluoridated population in Norway.
TLDR
Bivariate and multivariate analyses showed that, in addition to use of fluoride supplements, starting toothbrushing at an early age was associated with higher prevalence of dental fluorosis and the child's birth weight and liking for or swallowing of toothpaste did not influence the prevalence of fluorosis.

TLDR
It is confirmed that in non-fluoridated communities the use of fluoride supplements during the first 6 years of life is associated with a significant increase in the risk of developing dental fluorosis. Expand

TLDR
Findings concerning the caries preventive effect of fluoride toothpastes in various age groups, with special emphasis on fluoride concentration and supervised versus non‐supervised brushing, reinforced the importance of daily toothbrushing with fluoridated toothpaste for preventing dental caries.
