Seven hundred eight patients aged 5-19 years in a pediatric practice in North Carolina were selected using a random-start, systematic sampling procedure and enrolled in a case control study to determine risks for fluorosis. Subjects were examined by four trained examiners using the Tooth Surface Index of Fluorosis (TSIF). Information on fluoride exposures and other explanatory variables was obtained through parent interviews and mail questionnaires. Fluoride exposure was confirmed by fluoride… Expand
Risk factors for dental fluorosis in pediatric dental patients.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that increased use of fluoride toothpaste may be a risk factor for dental fluorosis and prudent use of dentifrice by young children to minimize the risk of fluorosis. Expand
Prevalence of dental fluorosis in the primary dentition.
TLDR
The results of this study show that primary tooth fluorosis is relatively uncommon, but is most frequently seen on the posterior teeth, particularly the primary second molars, which form at later stages of development. Expand
Dental fluorosis in children attending basic health units.
TLDR
Despite of the low severity, the high prevalence observed shows the need for regular screening of dental fluorosis in Londrina and establishment of procedures to prevent the overutilization of fluoride both by the professionals and the population. Expand
Fluorosis risk from early exposure
Swallowed fluoride toothpaste in the early years of life has been postulated to be a risk factor for fluorosis, but the epidemiological evidence is weakened by the fact that most of the relevantExpand
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. Expand
Risk factors and prevalence of dental fluorosis and dental caries in school children of North India
TLDR
The aim of the study was to assess the prevalence of dental fluorosis, dental caries, and associated risk factors in the school children of district Fatehgarh Sahib, Punjab, India, using a cross-sectional study design and highlights the need to increase awareness about the oral health and hygiene. Expand
Investigation of the possible associations between fluorosis, fluoride exposure, and childhood behavior problems.
TLDR
There was a significant association between supplemental fluoride exposure from ages 0-3 years and fluorosis and there was no association between behavior problems and dental fluorosis in this population of children. Expand
Fluorosis risk from early exposure to fluoride toothpaste.
TLDR
F fluoride toothpaste use before the age of 6 years is a risk indicator for fluorosis in this study population of schoolchildren in Goa, India. Expand
Dental fluorosis in children residing in communities with different water fluoride levels: 33-month follow-up.
TLDR
With the downward adjustment in the fluoride supplement schedule, continued monitoring of the prevalence of dental fluorosis in young children is needed to determine if any additional steps are even necessary to restrict fluoride intake during the years that enamel formation is occurring. Expand
Risk factors for dental fluorosis: a review of the recent literature.
TLDR
This paper describes for the clinician the condition and summarizes the recent literature on the risk factors for fluorosis and four major risk factors were consistently identified: use of fluoridated drinking water, fluoride supplements, fluoride toothpaste, and infant formulas before the age of six years.

Risk Factors for Dental Fluorosis in a Fluoridated Community
TLDR
Dental fluorosis is not a public health problem in East York, but parents should be advised to supervise toothbrushing by children under 2 years of age. Expand
Risk of enamel fluorosis associated with fluoride supplementation, infant formula, and fluoride dentifrice use.
Eight hundred fifty 11- to 14-year-old residents of nonfluoridated communities in Massachusetts and Connecticut, who were born between 1972 and 1975, were investigated in a case-control study of theExpand
Dental Fluorosis and Fluoride Exposure in Western Australia
TLDR
The findings suggest that supplement use by some children in 1978-82 provided too much fluoride, and that a small number of persons have undesirable fluorosis. Expand
Relation of sources of systemic fluoride to prevalence of dental fluorosis.
TLDR
The results demonstrate similarities to the fluorosis reported in other studies in nonfluoridated areas, but also suggest the need to minimize the occurrence of fluorosis through proper assessment of a child's fluoride exposure and the judicious use of additional fluoride. Expand

The frequency of using self-applied (over-the-counter) fluoride products and prescribed supplemental fluorides, and the prevalence of fluorosis-like enamel lesions in the permanent dentitions ofExpand
Dental fluorosis among participants in a non-supervised fluoride tablet program.
TLDR
The aim of the present study was to describe the intraoral pattern of dental fluorosis among fluoride tablet consumers and found that the later in life the tooth was formed, the higher was the prevalence. Expand

Three hundred seventy-four 12- to 14-year-old children were examined to determine modified tooth surface index of fluorosis (TSIF) scores, and to assess the association among fluoride enamelExpand
Prevalence of dental caries and dental fluorosis in students, 11-17 years of age, in fluoridated and non-fluoridated cities in Quebec.
TLDR
It was shown that water fluoridation benefitted students from public schools and that the risk factors for dental fluorosis were the use of fluoridated water and fluoride tablets. Expand
Dental fluorosis in children exposed to multiple sources of fluoride: implications for school fluoridation programs.
TLDR
The results suggest that children consuming water at home containing the optimal fluoride concentration and drinking water at school containing the recommended fluoride level (4.5 times the optimum) are not at risk to dental fluorosis that impairs appearance. Expand
