Fluoride is a mineral that’s naturally found in water sources and it’s commonly added to dental care products to help prevent cavities. But the dangers of swallowing too much fluoride presents serious health risks, which is why the Food and Drug Administration requires all fluoride toothpaste in the U.S. to include a poison warning on the label.

Fluoride Toxicity

The absorption of this ingredient can cause permanent tooth discoloration, stomach ailments, acute toxicity, skin rashes and impairment in glucose metabolism. Because the symptoms of acute fluoride toxicity mimic other, common ailments many cases of fluoride poisoning go undiagnosed or mistreated. That's why it's best to go fluoride-free!

Dental Fluorosis

Excessive exposure to low concentrations of fluoride can result in tiny white streaks or specks in the enamel of the tooth. But in severe cases of dental fluorosis, the tooth has more evident discoloration and brown markings. The enamel may become rough or pitted, and difficult to clean. What's worse? These spots and stains on the teeth, which are permanent, may eventually darken.
