Fluoride ion is not mutagenic in standard bacterial systems but has been associated with genetic aberrations in cultured human cells at doses much higher than expected for human exposure (6,8). Some in vivo studies report chromosomal aberrations in rodents while other studies using similar protocols report negative results (7).
Potential adverse reproductive effects of fluoride exposure in humans have not been adequately evaluated. Adverse reproductive effects of fluoride have been reported in animal studies, but at high concentrations sufficient to produce other manifestations of toxicity (9).
is not a teratogen (10,12,13). Maternal exposure to 18 mg Fluoride/kg of body weight did not affect maternal body weight, litter size or fetal weight and did not increase frequency of skeletal or visceral malformations (10). There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Several epidemiological studies show no increase in birth defects in areas with fluoridated water compared to areas with low fluoridated water (7). However, caution should be exercised when fluoride is administered to pregnant women.

of 6 years has not been established. Please refer to CONTRAINDICATIONS and
