Dental fluorosis is a dental condition which is characterized by deficiency of minerals in the tooth enamel. Ingesting excess of fluoride during the first eight years of life can cause this condition. Mild discoloration of teeth is a common symptom. Symptoms of heightened condition may include noticeable holes in the tooth, dark stains and irregularity of the tooth surface. Using dental products which are high in fluoride can lead to such. They are often a sign of hereditary diabetes.
