Recommendations on use of fluoride toothpaste & supplements in Scotland

Despite continuing improvements, dental caries is still a significant problem in Scotland. Application of fluoride varnish at least twice a year and twice daily toothbrushing with fluoride toothpaste together with reducing the frequency of consumption of sugar in foods and drinks, especially between meals and in the evening, are key elements of effective caries prevention.

These recommendations provide a short summary of existing guidance and have been developed by the Scottish Consultants in Dental Public Health Group in consultation with the Scottish Dental Clinical Effectiveness Programme (SDCEP).
