How to avoid white spots and lines on your teeth

Medically known as dental fluorosis, the painless white and brown spots on your teeth are preventable and repairable.

Key takeaways:

– Dental fluorosis appears when too much fluoride from drinking tap water and toothpaste, comes in contact with teeth.

– Prevention involves properly rinsing your teeth after brushing and not drinking water with excess fluoride.

– Since it only develops in childhood, protect your child’s smile by keeping toothpaste out of reach and consulting the dentist on the right amount of toothpaste to use.

In limited amounts, fluoride is good for your health.
