Do additional high-fluoride interventions among low caries prevalence orthodontic cases using fixed appliances reduce caries incidence?

Three-arm controlled trial conducted by a randomised controlled trial reveals the same result. An adjunctive caries prevention technique was used by three groups: both groups were compared: the group one used only a 1,450 ppm fluoride toothpaste, while the other used only a 1,450 ppm fluoride toothpaste. As an adjunctive caries prevention strategy, the two groups used only 5,000 ppm fluoride toothpaste. Group three was similar to group one, but with the addition of a fluoride mouth rinse. As the key outcome metric, the Decayed Initial Filled Surfaces index, which was based on progress radiographs, was used. Case selection Prospective orthodontic patients with a low prevalence of caries are eager to participate in the RCT. During therapy, both groups had an increase in DIFS. When considering two cut-off values for DIFS, Caries' incidence was not significantly affected in either treatment group. Conclusions This research looked at the potential effects of additional, high-fluoride interventions on caries incidences during orthodontic treatment with fixed appliances.
