ABSTRACT:
Fluorosis is a developmental disturbance to the enamel due to excessive exposure of fluoride in high concentration during tooth development .It is also called as mottling of tooth enamel. The children who are excessively exposed to fluoride between 20 and 30 months of age are more prone to fluorosis .If the condition is mild the enamel has opaque white areas covering 50% of the tooth surface .In severe form all the tooth surfaces are affected, discrete confluent streaks and brown markings can be seen .It often occurs in areas where the drinking water content is greater than 1 ppm (part per million) and in children who have poor intake of calcium. Tooth bleaching, microbrasion and conservative composite restorations or porcelain veneers are the common treatments methods for fluorosis.
