Even though fluoride provides a significant contribution in dental caries prevention, it is known that its random employment may lead to enamel alterations such as dental fluorosis, besides the possibility of severe systemic alterations. The aim of this study was to evaluate the ingestion of mouthwashes administered to preschool children. It was concluded that parents and teachers of young children must be very careful during the accomplishment of educational programs comprising fluoridated mouthwashes, because of the high possibility of ingestion.
Fluoride ingestion from toothpaste by young children
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the reported and observed brushing habits of young children and their ingestion of fluoride from toothpaste. DESIGN: In 1997, a random sample of 50 children, aged 30 months, from three districts in the North West region of England, were visited at home. METHODS: The reported and observed toothbrushing behaviour
Effectiveness of Fluoridation Depending on Periodicity in 6–10-year-old Children.
Background The cost-effectiveness of this study was achieved in the group that was treated every three months with periodic intervals, which had a reduction of caries with 62%. The relative effectiveness of our study is the application of fluoride treatment every 3 months compared with treatments done every 4 and 6
Fluoride in Saliva and Oral Mucosa after Brushing with 1,450 or 5,000 ppm Fluoride Toothpaste.
The aim was to measure and compare fluoride concentrations in oral mucosa and saliva following a single brushing with either 1,450 or 5,000 ppm fluoride toothpaste. Fourteen healthy participants provided saliva and oral mucosa samples in the morning before tooth brushing. Then participants brushed their teeth with 1,450 ppm fluoride
Cytotoxic effects of silver diamine fluoride.
PURPOSE: To investigate the effect of silver diamine fluoride (SDF) and fluoride varnish (FV) on human gingival fibroblasts (HGF) and bacteria. METHODS: HGF cell viability was assessed after exposure to various dilutions of SDF or FV. Hydroxyapatite (HA) discs treated with SDF, FV, or saline were rinsed in artificial saliva for
A comparative evaluation of the anticaries efficacy of herbal extracts (Tulsi and Black myrobalans) and sodium fluoride as mouthrinses in children: A randomized controlled trial.
Background: Dental caries is a multifactorial disease in which microorganisms play an important role. Recently, herbs have been tried as mouthrinses to combat the side effects of chemical mouthrinses. The anticaries efficacy of Sodium fluoride, Tulsi leaf, and Black myrobalans fruit extracts on Streptococcus mutans (S. mutans) have been reported
