Fluoride tablet supplementation during pregnancy for caries immunity: a study of the offspring produced

American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology
F B GlennR C Duncan


Evidence continues to accumulate that the fetal nutritional need for the mineral fluoride begins early in pregnancy and that tablet supplementation is required during the last two trimesters to supply that need, since fluoridated water alone during pregnancy is not sufficient. This study of 492 children confirms the safety and efficacy of using a sodium fluoride tablet supplement, by means of which the obstetrician can help his pregnant patients produce children with superior teeth that are immune to decay.
