Fluorosis is an accumulation of excessive amounts of fluoride within the body. It is commonly associated with an excessive level of fluoridation of water supplies above 2-4 parts per million.

Dental fluorosis usually presents as white flecking or linear opacities of enamel. At higher concentrations, systemic fluorosis can occur with:

  • bone pain
  • sclerosis of spine
  • ligamentous ossification
  • disordered new bone growth
