The purpose of this case-control investigation was to investigate the possible association between mild-to-moderate enamel fluorosis and exposure during early childhood to infant formula, fluoride toothpaste, and/or fluoride supplements.
Analysis was performed on 401 residents of fluoridated communities in Connecticut, who were 12-16 years old and born prior to 1980.
The case and control subjects for this study were selected on the basis of a clinical examination given in 1991.
Subject fluorosis status was determined using the Fluorosis Risk Index.
Risk factor exposure was ascertained via a mailed questionnaire with a response rate of 89% and a questionnaire reliability of 87%.
