The aim of this study was to compare the caries preventive effect of highly fluoridated dentifrices and gels on sound dentin as well as on artificial dentin caries-like lesions.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: Caries research
The aim of the present study was to determine the concentration of total fluoride (TF) and total soluble fluoride (TSF) in children's dentifrices marketed in the city of Lima, Peru. Three samples of 2...
This study evaluated effects of Bioglass 45S5 (BG) and Biosilicate (BS) remineralization on the chemical composition and bond strength of control dentin (CD) and bleached dentin (BD) surfaces.
The remineralization of dentin at a bonded interface would help to strengthen the bonded interface and inhibit secondary caries, and would prolong the longevity of restoration. The aim of this study w...
Inner carious dentin is specified with decreased minerals and collagen cross-links but without protein denaturation. Current minimally invasive dentistry concepts recommend removal of only the outer l...
This study will use an oral in situ caries model to study remineralization of enamel due to the action of different combinations of fluoride salts delivered from dentifrices.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the stain build up of two stannous fluoride (SnF2) / sodium tripolyphosphate (STP) dentifrices of differing abrasivity levels, with a m...
This is a double blind, cross-over, controlled clinical trial utilizing thirty (30) adults to evaluate remineralization of early caries lesions.
Introduction: Dentin hypersensitivity (DH) could be defined as a brief and sharp pain in response to thermical, chemical, tactile and osmotic stimuli, which cannot be attributed to any den...
The aim of this study is to assess the impact of formulation differences on fluoride retention clearance with US levels of fluoride (1150 ppm of fluoride) by evaluating and comparing betwe...
An autosomal dominant disorder of tooth development characterized by opalescent dentin resulting in discoloration of the teeth, ranging from dusky blue to brownish. The dentin is poorly formed with an abnormally low mineral content; the pulp canal is obliterated, but the enamel is normal. The teeth usually wear down rapidly, leaving short, brown stumps. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Adherent debris produced when cutting the enamel or dentin in cavity preparation. It is about 1 micron thick and its composition reflects the underlying dentin, although different quantities and qualities of smear layer can be produced by the various instrumentation techniques. Its function is presumed to be protective, as it lowers dentin permeability. However, it masks the underlying dentin and interferes with attempts to bond dental material to the dentin.
Calcium fluoride. Occurring in nature as the mineral fluorite or fluorspar. It is the primary source of fluorine and its compounds. Pure calcium fluoride is used as a catalyst in dehydration and dehydrogenation and is used to fluoridate drinking water. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
A source of inorganic fluoride which is used topically to prevent dental caries.
An apparently hereditary disorder of dentin formation, marked by a normal appearance of coronal dentin associated with pulpal obliteration, faulty root formation, and a tendency for peripheral lesions without obvious cause. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
