KEEP THIS AND ALL MEDICATIONS OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
Sodium fluoride acts systemically (before tooth eruption) and topically (post eruption) by increasing tooth resistance to acid dissolution, by promoting remineralization and by inhibiting the cariogenic microbial process.
INDICATIONS AND USAGE
It has been established that ingestion of fluoridated drinking water (1 ppm F) during the period of tooth development results in significant decrease in the incidence of dental caries. 1 Sodium Fluoride Drops were developed to provide systemic fluoride for use as a supplement in pediatric patients from 6 months to age 3 and older, living in areas where the drinking water fluoride level does not exceed 0.6 ppm F.
Do not use in areas where drinking water exceeds 0.6 ppm F. Do not administer to pediatric patients less than 6 months old.
See “Contraindications” above.
See “Overdosage” section. Incompatibility of fluoride with dairy foods has been reported due to formation of calcium fluoride which is poorly absored. Not for use in the eyes.
Allergic rash and other idosyncrasies have been rarely reported.

Prolonged daily ingestion of excessive fluoride will result in varying degrees of dental fluorosis. (The total amount of sodium fluoride in a bottle of 50 mL Sodium Fluoride Drops (25 mg F) conforms with the recommendations of the American Dental Association for the maximum to be dispensed at one time for safety purposes).
