On the subject of fluorides in dental care products:

The topic of fluorides is very controversially discussed. When fluorides are used in toothpastes (sodium fluoride, potassium fluoride, calcium fluoride, disodium monofluorophosphate, sodium monofluorophosphate, ammonium fluoride, tin(II) fluoride etc.), it is often argued that the benefit outweighs the damage, the enamel-curing properties of fluorides and caries prophylaxis are in the foreground here.

A general fluoridation of toothpastes does not make sense from our point of view. A deliberate application of possibly even higher doses of special preparations under medical or dental supervision in individual situations or in a proven deficiency situation is clearly to be preferred.

Of course, we at PhytoVero stick to our credo with our dental care products. What comes onto or even into the body must be edible and must therefore never be toxic. This fact is not the case with all fluorides currently used in dental products. Fluorides are generally regarded as nerve toxins [1] .
A calculation example using sodium fluoride: Sodium fluoride has a CLD value (certainly lethal dose) of 32-64mg/kg body weight (for children only 16mg/kg body weight). For infants, the probable toxic dose (PTD) is 5mg/kg body weight.

Assuming a maximum permitted concentration of 1500ppm (parts per million) of sodium fluoride in a 75ml (100g) toothpaste, this concentration corresponds to 150mg of sodium fluoride per tube. A child with a body weight of 15 kg would thus be in the toxic dose range when consuming this tube of toothpaste. Chronically, a significantly lower dose can have a toxic effect [2][3]. 
We also recommend the publication: 'Opinion of the scientific committee on cosmetic Products' : "The safety of Fluorine compounds in oral hygiene products ..." to persons interested in this topic [4].
