Well, I don't have a number for you.

I can tell you that in Dentistry we use 3 main types of fluoride for therapeutic use.

NaF also known as sodium fluoride

APF also know is acidulated phosphate fluoride

SnF also known as stannous fluoride

Fluoride may occur in many other forms that I am not aware of, but these are the forms that are used to produce clinical results.

I couldn't tell you how many forms of fluoride there, but if you are concerned that you need fluoride for your teeth, don't worry, If you get your teeth cleaned the recommended twice a year, the dentist should do a fluoride treatment. That is plenty. Also, If you live in the city, you are getting additional fluoride because most cities add a small amaount of fluoride to their drinking water resurves for this purpose, not to mention it helps keep the water you are drinking healthy.

i thought there was like 600 and even more
