Frequent Questions

In addition to water, what are other specific sources of fluoride?

Fluoridated toothpaste is another main source of fluoride intake.  Other fluoride-containing dental products are applied or prescribed by a health care professional such as gels, varnishes, pastes and restorative materials.  These products are used only occasionally on the outside of the tooth and do not contribute much to the total intake of fluoride.  Small amounts of fluoride can also come from industrial emissions, pharmaceuticals and pesticides.
