Fluorosis is a condition that affects the teeth. It Is caused by overexposure to fluoride during the first eight years of life. This is the time when most permanent teeth are being formed. After the teeth come in, the teeth of those affected by fluorosis may appear mildly discolored.
Symptoms :
Severe - Dark brown stains and rough, pitted enamel.
Mild - White opaque areas on the surface.

-The stains were caused by high levels of fluoride in the local water supply.
-Inappropriate use of fluoride-containing dental products such as toothpaste and mouth rinses. Sometimes, children enjoy the taste of fluoridated toothpaste so much that they swallow it instead of spitting it out.
Treatments :
1.Tooth whitening
-At home, keep all fluoride-containing products such as toothpaste, mouth rinses, and supplements out of the reach of young children. Only place a pea-sized amount of toothpaste on your child’s toothbrush.
-Use fluoridated water at a level that could prevent cavities but without causing fluorosis

People with these stains also had an unusually high resistance to dental cavities.
