As a recognised effective and economical agent for dental caries prevention, fluoride has been used in many different fluoridation schemes implemented across the world. Considering the narrow 'dose-ga...
Since the 1950s, the benefits and risks of fluoridated water use have been debated worldwide. In the past, it was considered that the systemically ingested fluoride would exert its primary preventive ...
This study aimed to elucidate the effects of hydrogen peroxide (HO) and sodium fluoride (NaF) on titanium surfaces under conditions mimicking those encountered during dental treatment.
Contamination of orthodontic appliances is due to the unhygienic practices followed during manufacturing and packaging processes, which may lead to cross-contamination. Although literature has indicat...

This study is to evaluate the amount of fluoride in plaque fluid after brushing iwth fluoride dentifrices
Fluoride is very effective in preventing dental decay (cavities) when applied in the form of a varnish on tooth surfaces. The purpose of this study is to verify if fluoride-releasing prime...
The purpose of this trial is to evaluate the anticaries remineralizing potential of a toothpaste containing 500 ppm fluoride plus fTCP technology relative to a commercially available tooth...
Attachment of orthodontic devices and materials to the MOUTH area for support and to provide a counterforce to orthodontic forces.
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.
Poisoning that results from chronic or acute ingestion, injection, inhalation, or skin absorption of FLUORIDE compounds.
Inorganic fluorides of tin. They include both stannic fluoride (tin tetrafluoride) and stannous fluoride (tin difluoride). The latter is used in the prevention of dental caries.
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
