Dental hard tissues' mineral content has traditionally been determined by invasive procedures such as transverse microradiography. This report compared the preventive effects of silver diammine fluoride and potassium iodide in comparison to fluoride varnish. KI produces a precipitate with SDF that minimizes the discoloration, but the effect on SDF efficiency in terms of preventing dentin surface degradation is unknown. For all parameters, there was no statistical difference between Control and all three other groups, according to Bonferroni posthoc, but there was no statistical difference between Control and all three other groups, however, there was no statistical difference between F-Varnish, SDF, and SDF+KI. Root dentin demineralizationization was shown by repeated preventive action against single applications of F-Varnish, SDF, and SDF+KI. Micro CT is a fast and cost-effective tool for objective and high-resolution analysis of dentin caries lesions.

Silver diamine fluoride can cause dental caries and prevents its progression. Now, several countries have recommended the use of a 38 percent silver diamine fluoride treatment for caries prevention as well as for caries arrest. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (Academo) published the first recommendations regarding the use of silver diamine fluoride for dental caries control in children and adolescents, as well as those with special healthcare requirements.

Streptococcus mutans, the most common etiological bacteria in the oral cavity that leads to dental caries, is Streptococcus mutans. All of the S. mutans in the oral cavity biofilms that stick to tooth surfaces are present in dental hygiene. In this research, an esterified derivative of epigallocatechin-3-gallate, was used to determine the ability of reducing S. mutans' growth and biofilm formation. EGCG-S was shown to be equally effective in limiting S. mutans growth as chlorhexidine gluconate.
