The Role Of Fluoride On Caries Prevention

Dental caries is the most common chronic disease among children in the United States. Dental caries is a non-communicable disease; it is also related to lifestyle causes that can lead to other disorders such as obesity and diabetes. Dental fluorosis is mainly due to a systemic intake of fluorides during the first six years of age. However, early exposure to fluoride toothpaste has also contributed to dental fluorosis due to unintended swallowing. When choosing the strength of fluoride toothpaste for young children, this danger should be considered.

Extended caries prevention programme with biannual application of fluoride varnish for toddlers: prevalence of dental fluorosis at ages 7-9 years and associated factors.

Objectives: To investigate the prevalence of and causes of dental fluorosis in children living in Stockholm's high caries risk and who had participated in a prospective, parallel, cluster-randomized, placebo-controlled caries prevention study involving children aged 1 to 3 years. All children were taught to use fluoride toothpaste, and the testing group received fluoride varnish applications twice a year. Nearly one-third of the children in the study cohort had dental fluorosis. Conclusions Biannual applications of fluoride varnish in toddlers were not associated with dental fluorosis, which although present, was not a point of aesthetic concern.

Acidic Microenvironment-Sensitive Core-Shell Microcubes: The Self-assembled and the Therapeutic Effects for Caries Prevention.

By fluoride ion electrode measurements, the fluoride release profile was determined. RESULTS: The NaF@PAA@PAA@HA@polyelectrolyeth polymer layers in a thin fin or filament structure showed a core covered by tooth enamel slides to determine fluoride absorption and antibacterial activity of the prototype toothpaste containing microcube particles. Our prototype toothpaste improved enamel fluoride uptake in enamel slides by 8fold and by 11-fold in slides with induced white spot lesions after either 1- or 7-day treatment, relative to the best commercial toothpaste results. Also, the prototype toothpaste showed better resistance to cariogenic microorganisms than the commercial brands. On normal enamel slides, 73% compared to the commercial brands, while 69% in the case of white spot lesions.
