Does anyone have a child who suffers with dental fluorosis (where teeth are whitened by too much fluoride) or have it themselves as a mum?

No I don't although very paranoid about it!!!!!!
It is apart from looking a bit chalky,usually harmless,in children that is. Main causes flouride tabs-which should be stopped. In adults cosmetic dentistry is the answer to disguise the spots. In children they may darken with time,and that can look bad. Anyone with it should cut down on the amount of toothpaste their child uses.
I don't know anyone who uses those tabs but I still get paranoid about it!!!! The joys of being a mum!!!
