Fluoride Action Network


Recently, mostly as a result of drinking water fluoridation, the number of young patients affected by fluorosis increased considerably. This study describes a minimally invasive technique, using in-office dental bleaching (35% hydrogen peroxide) and enamel microabrasion (silicon carbide and 12% hydrochloric acid) to eliminate fluorosis like stains. The association of techniques was efficient and can be recommended as a good conservative alternative for the treatment of fluorosis affected teeth.
