2009; 23 Suppl 1:23-30. [ Links ], 36. The position of the tooth and child attitude were the most influenced factors in the perception of the parents that the discoloration was more tolerable when the tooth located posteriorly, and the child acting was worse. of community dental care programmes and reports on the launch of new community dental care programmes are within the scope of this Special Issue. Absorption, Distribution, Secretion, and Excretion of Fluoride Fluoride-containing compounds are extremely diverse. A search of YouTube was performed using the keywords "fluoride treatment for kids," which is one of the most frequently terms for searching on F therapy. carbonate), and a less organized crystal structure. The fluoride ion concentrations were determined with. 2001 Jan-Feb;35(1):41-6. Introduction: The major drawback of Silver diamine fluoride was the dark discoloration of the treated carious lesion. Interest in aqueous silver diamine fluoride (SDF) has been growing as a treatment for caries arrest. The best recommendation on the use of fluoride toothpastes by young children, considering the balance of benefits and risks, is that a small amount of dentifrice should be used. The many methods of fluoride delivery that will be discussed here are meant to supply the oral cavity with this ion and thus reduce the progression of lesions. Risk assessment in dentistry. The measurements were performed when open and at 7 and 28 days. 2007;41(1):9-15. periodontal disease) conditions, and root caries can develop in patients whose enamel caries were under control. Conclusion: Silver diamine fluoride discoloration showed widely different acceptability. Oliveby A, Twetman S, Ekstrand J. Diurnal fluoride concentration in whole saliva in children living in a high- and a low-fluoride area. teeth surfaces,amalgam and composite fillings surfaces.Each surface was This effect, occurring every day, results in delayed mineral loss and prolongs the time needed for caries lesions to be clinically observed – or even maintains the mineral loss at subclinical stages for the whole life of an individual. The lower fluoride availability in the biofilm fluid and solids, either soon after or 10 to 12 hours after the use of a low fluoride toothpaste, may explain these results. Fluoride concentration (in ppm F unless otherwise noted) found in common fluoride delivery systems. [ Links ], 18. Marinho VCC, Higgins JPT, Logan S, Sheiham A. Fluoride toothpastes for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents. similarities in topograraphies of permanent and deciduous teeth surfaces but Rev Saude Publica. Oxford: Oxford University Press; 1992. Among various strategies for caries prevention or reduction, fluoride therapy has been highly promoted. Fluorosis has been reported in conjunction with increased doses of fluoride. Community Dent Oral Epidemiol. Kidd EAM, Fejerskov O. fluoride to all members of the community, regardless of age, education, income level or access to routine dental care. The antibacterial effect of fluoride in the concentrations remaining in the oral cavity, predominantly below 10 ppm, cannot affect bacterial metabolism.10 Also, once a great mineral loss has occurred, and the clinical signs are already visible (e.g. How can its benefits be maximized and still reduce the risks associated with its use? more than 6 times/day4). Access scientific knowledge from anywhere. [ Links ], 42. Braz Oral Res, of fluoride-containing chewing gum on reminer-, alization of carious lesions and on fluoride up-. Methods: A five database search, reference review, and hand search, identified 113 human clinical trials in three languages published between 1966-2006. Cochrane Database, nese kindergarten children.

All medical students of 4th and 5th year were enrolled for this study from May 2018 to June 2018. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. J Dent Res. Recent epidemiologic and related evidence suggests the following trends: 1. the prevalence of caries continues to decline in children of the US and several other developed countries; 2. the prevalence of mild dental fluorosis is increasing; 3. the majority of the cariostatic effects of fluoride are topical; and 4. dietary fluoride supplements are a risk factor for dental fluorosis. Unexpected large caries reductions obtained in this nonexperimental study, however, probably cannot be attributed to the fluoridation of milk alone. Cury JA, Tenuta LM, Ribeiro CC, Paes Leme AF.

Cross-sectional samples of 6 1/2-year-olds in Asenovgrad and Panaguriche (a nearby town selected as the reference community) were examined at the start of the study in 1988 and after three years. of the test toothpaste.In relation to Streptococcus mutans,the mean diameter The study purpose was to examine associations between caregiver acceptance of SDF treatment for children with caries and (1) sociodemographic and acculturation characteristics of caregivers and (2) clinical assessments of the children by dentists. 1993;27(4):280-284. Eur J Oral Sci. Odontopediatria: bases científicas para a prática clínica. Such concepts as "fluoride strengthening teeth", "increasing the resistance of teeth to acids" and "reducing the acid produced by bacteria", although theoretically reasonable, are no longer accepted as clinically relevant to the reduction of caries associated with fluoride use.7,10 In other words, fluoride is not able to affect biofilm accumulation (necessary factor) and the production of acids from its exposure to sugars (determinant factor), but will chemically reduce the mineral loss induced by the combination of these two factors, through the precipitation of a fluoridated mineral on teeth. CONTENTS:- Introduction Composition Source of fluoride Mechanism of action of fluoride and their delivery methods. On the other hand, regarding low fluoride concentration toothpastes (e.g. Fluoride’s effectiveness in preventing tooth decay extends throughout one’s life, resulting in fewer — and less severe — cavities.

On the other hand, since pioneer studies on water fluoridation have demonstrated its effectiveness and safety, it has also become clear that some degree of fluorosis would be present.42 The fluoride concentration to be added to water supplies was then calculated to result in the best anticaries benefit that could be achieved while maintaining fluorosis at low levels and low prevalence. [ Links ], 22. The mean fluoride ion concentrations of the freshly opened bottles were 12,525 ± 450, 13,200 ± 2060 and 55,800 ± 2536 ppm, respectively. Fluoride is commonly and widely used to prevent and even arrest caries. was 13.6mm whereas for the control (chlorohexidne gluconate)was Results: The trials indicated that SDF's lowest prevented fractions for caries arrest and caries prevention were 96.1% and 70.3%, respectively. Caregiver acceptance of SDF treatment is high; child's age and caregiver comfort are associated with acceptance.
