Will liquid iron supplements stain my teeth?

The build-up of plaque or calculus on your teeth can stain from using liquid iron supplements like Spatone. However if your teeth are cleaned regularly you should not need to worry about Spatone staining your teeth.

It is possible that liquid iron supplements can stain teeth when consistently used. However, provided your teeth are cleaned regularly you shouldn’t need to worry about Spatone liquid iron staining them. If you do feel like you have some staining, try brushing your teeth with baking soda to remove any residue or speak to your dentist about professional cleaning.

You can also reduce the chance of this happening by drinking your Spatone sachet mixed in with a juice of your choice or through a straw to minimise the contact between your teeth and the liquid iron.

Always read the label and use only as directed. Iron supplementation may be of assistance where dietary iron intake is inadequate.
