ASDC journal of dentistry for children  
Ingestion of fluoride dentifrice by preschool children recently has been identified as a risk factor for dental fluorosis. There are relatively few published studies concerning patterns of fluoride dentifrice use and ingestion among preschool children at greatest risk for dental fluorosis. This paper reviews the literature on dentifrice use and ingestion in an attempt to emphasize to the practitioner the potential importance of this fluoride exposure in fluorosis etiology.
