Objectives: The aim of the survey was to assess and implement fluoride use for caries prevention as well as determining the influencing socioeconomic and behavioral factors. Overall, 56. 5 percent of the participants were aware of the role of fluoride in caries prevention, and 43. 3% had appropriate policies related to fluoride use. Compared to their peers, a significant proportion of older students and those in the senior years of the study were aware of fluoride use in caries prevention. For senior participants than the junior participants, the chances of being aware of and utilizing appropriate techniques related to fluorides for caries prevention were higher among senior participants than those less experienced. Conclusion: A relatively small number of university students was aware of fluoride use for caries prevention. Those who were in their senior years of study were more likely to be aware and using fluoride for caries prevention than the juniors.

Caries lesions appear in early childhood and affect more than half of children under the age of 3 and in over 80% of children of 12. The investigation of the basic determinants of planning prophylactic activity and a prevention of caries disease in children and teens is extremely important. The paper discusses the etiologic causes of caries disease directly and indirectly related to disease progression. The authors discuss the relationship between caries in deciduous and permanent teeth and the occurrence of early childhood caries and colonization time by cariogenic germs. Epidemiologic data are reveals the importance of combining prevention in populations with high prophylaxis and individual risk prophylaxis carried out by dentists, which are illustrated. The principles of individual caries prophylaxis and procedures of proceeding are discussed as low, moderate, and high are discussed.

It is very important to use fluoride as a preventative agent for dental cavities. In order to determine fluoride use, the Dental Therapist must have knowledge of fluoride in order to determine attitudes. There was a difference between the Dental Therapist's attitude and the age group based on gender and education level, but it was not surprising that there were differences in the Dental Therapist's fluoride use and attitudes with the age group, while the older the age group was the most prevalent, and the best use of fluoride can also help understand and digest the appropriate use of fluoride and how to minimize dental fluorosis incidences.

Abstract This four-year controlled clinical trial was designed to gather data into dental caries management and prevention, as well as the effects of stannous fluoride tablets in athletes. Both by a linear mixed model for repeated measures and a generalized linear mixed model were used to assess the primary endpoint dental caries of the ICDAS-II-System. A decrease from 13. 94 u00b1 5. 70 and 2. 76 surfaces at baseline to 7. 89 u00b1 0. 78 and 0. 48 percent respectively after 2. 5 years was observed, respectively. The number of caries-free surfaces, dental hygiene, and restorative care all increased, while the chance of a new surface to be afflicted with caries media decreased by 25 percent.

By fluoride ion electrode, the fluoride release profile was determined. Results of the prototype toothpaste containing microcube particles investigated fluoride absorption and antibacterial activity of the prototype toothpaste containing microcube particles were found on tooth enamel slides. The results of the experiment conducted on tooth enamel slides revealed a core covered by thin fin or filament structure. Our prototype toothpaste improved enamel fluoride uptake by 8fold in standard enamel slides and by 11-fold in slides with induced white spot lesions after either 1- or 7 days treatment, relative to the best commercial toothpaste findings. Likewise, the prototype toothpaste produced greater inhibition of cariogenic microorganisms than commercial brands. On average enamel slides, we saw 73% less on ordinary enamel slides compared to the commercial brands, while 69% in the case of induced white spot lesions were 69 percent.

The aim of the investigation was to determine the antibacterial activity of fresh Citrus limon fruit juice against S. mutans and measure its ascorbic acid content. Assay of standard ascorbic acid against S. mutans is also used to determine the MIC, MBC, and growth curve. Fresh C. limon fruit juice demonstrated significant antimicrobial activity against the S. mutans reference strain by the agar well diffusion technique. By HPLC methods, the ascorbic acid concentration in C. limon juice was found to be 0. 19 percent w/w. Standard ascorbic acid's MIC and MBC values against S. mutans were determined to be 12. 5 mg/ml and 25 mg/ml, respectively. Ascorbic acid with a sub-MIC concentration of 6. 25 mg/ml did not have any significant differences in the S. mutans' growth rate. To summarize, C. limon fruit juice is a potential source of innate antibacterial metabolites against S. mutans.

In vitro, extracted human teeth specimens stored in S. mutans containing medium were evaluated for enamel demineralization, demonstrating the preventive effect of LCFV on enamel demineralization. The film thickness of LCFV significantly decreased with the introduction of zwitterionic substances relative to the control LCFV, although there were no significant differences in the DC among any of the LCFV groups. During a 14-day immersion in the medium with S. mutans and sucrose, the degree of demineralization was much lower in LCFV with zwitterionic materials than in the control, and both LCFV groups, as well as the control, demonstrated certain preventive activities against enamel demineralization, and sucrose.

Abstract The aim was to find out how self-assembling Peptide P11-4 Matrix could remineralize artificial initial caries lesions when compared to the use of fluoride varnish. A: negative control, no cure; B: positive control, 22,600 ppm fluoride varnish;C: test group, 1,000 ppm SAPM. Before/after demineralisation and after the in situ period, laser fluorescence values were measured. After the in situ phase, micro-CT analysis was used to determine mineral changes in the specimens. B: +5. 28, B: +0. 85, C: u22122. 89, B: 118. 89, and C: u0394LF results after in situ phase were in specimens without brackets. u3394LF was based on table data. Following the in situ phase, the LF-values between groups significantly differed from each other. No significant difference was found between groups of specimens without brackets in the micro-CT analysis. The test group found notably more remineralisation in specimens with brackets than the negative and positive controls.

In some cases, dental caries affects temporary and permanent teeth, which can be impacted by dental decay in a short time after eruption. For these reasons, the health of dental fissures, whether you're looking for dental plaque or bacterial plaque, is a risk factor in dental caries formation. WHO specifies fissure sealing as one of the four most effective ways for preventing dental caries.
