NEW YORK (Reuters Health) - Fluoride in water has helped prevent millions of cavities, but the results of a new study suggest that infants who drink large amounts of beverages that contain fluoride may be at risk for discoloration of their primary teeth.
In particular, infants who drank the most water-based beverages, particularly infant formulas made with water, were more likely to develop a condition called dental fluorosis when they were older.
