How safe is Fluoride?

Using fluoride for the prevention and control of tooth decay is proven to both safe and effective. The research supporting the use of fluoride in the prevention of cavities is strong and well supported by the AAPD and Dental schools around the world. Nevertheless, all products containing fluoride should be stored out of the reach of young children and monitored by the parent or guardian during use. Like with most things, fluoride is only dangerous when used or consumed in extreme and excessive amounts.
