Unfortunately fluorine is poisonous.
Fluorine must be prescribed with care to stay under the poisonous dose.
Water distributed by the public network is fluorined at the dose of 1500 µg/l.
Water distributed in bottles is fluorined at less than 400 µg/l.
We have also fluorined table salt, fluorined toothpaste, and eventual fluorined
mouth wash while an everyday use is not often indicated.
So the posology must be linked with these different daily consumptions.
Maximal daily fluorine dose is linked with the age.
until six months old no fluorine.
From six months to 30 months old 250 µg.
From 30 months to 6 years old 500 µg.

It is necessary to rinse several times and with strength.
It must be done with the cheeks those creates a stream in the mouth.
An efficient rinse is obtained when salivar viscosity is much decreased.
The brush cleans the dental surface with the discontinuous bristles surface.
So the toothwash may be incomplete.
To get a smoother surface we need a continuous surface as the surface of a tissue.
