Frequent Questions

Are children or adults exposed to too much fluoride?

Based on the data evaluated in this risk assessment, EPA concludes that it is likely that some children 8 and younger are exposed to too much fluoride at least occasionally while their teeth are forming because of their high fluid intake relative to their body weight and/or because of high natural levels of fluoride in their local drinking water.  The impact of overexposure on the risk for pitting of enamel in one or more teeth depends on the frequency and duration of the overexposures.
