Sodium fluoride may cause joint pains

I learnt that sodium fluoride in toothpastes and mouthwashes can have side effects, such as joint pains due to the fluoride accumulating in joints of the body over time.
"Skeletal fluorosis happens at the advanced stage of fluorosis. Fluoride deposits in the joints of the neck, knees, pelvic and shoulder bones and hinders movement. In the early stages, back stiffness, burning sensations, tingling or prickling, and muscle weakness arise and irregular calcium deposits show up in ligaments and bones."
So yea, I will see if I can get toothpastes and mouthwashes that do not contain sodium fluoride in future, and monitor whether the knee joint pains will cease after using these non-fluoride items.
