The objective of this study was to evaluate the dentin staining potential of nano-silver fluoride (NSF 600 and 1500 ppm) compared with the following commercially available cariostatic agents: Advantage Arrest (Elevate Oral Care, West Palm Beach, FL, USA), Riva Star (SDI, Victoria, Australia), and Cariestop (Biodinâmica, Paraná, Brazil). Seventy-five extracted human molars were sectioned at the cementoenamel junction, and the occlusal enamel was removed for exposure of coronary dentin. The samples were divided among the five agents tested (n=15). The dentin staining (ΔE/ΔL) was analyzed with a digital spectrophotometer (VITA Easyshade, VITA Zahnfabrik, Bad Säckingen, Germany) at three different time points (before application, after two weeks, and after four weeks). Photographic images were also performed. The Kruskal-Wallis and Mann-Whitney tests compared the mean ΔE and ΔL values between groups. The NSF 600 and 1500 ppm resulted in the smallest color change (ΔE=1.02 and 1.53) and dentin staining after four weeks (ΔL=-0.76 and -1.2). The new formulations differed significantly from the commercial cariostatic agents (<0.001). NSF might be an alternative to silver diamine fluoride since it does not compromise esthetics.

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 in vitro study evaluated the protective effect of fluoride varnishes containing sodium trimetaphosphate (TMP) against dentin erosion and abrasion. Specimens of coronal dentin were divided into: p...
This in vitro study assessed the efficacy of functionalized graphene oxide (f-GO) nanocomposites on the decalcification of dentin, because dental caries of the root surface is becoming one of the new ...
To assess if using potassium iodide (KI) immediately after application of Silver Diamine Fluoride (SDF) significantly reduces the staining of tooth structure.
To evaluate the microtensile bond strength (MTBS) of resin composite to demineralized dentin treated with SDF or SDF-KI.
This study will investigate the effectiveness of nanohydroxyapatite (nano-HAP)-containing toothpastes and cream to relieve dentin hypersensitivity, comparing it with those of a commercial ...
The management of deep carious lesions approaching a healthy pulp is considered a challenge to the dental practitioner. The conventional treatment of deep carious lesions requires the remo...

This study is being conducted to test whether the use of diammine silver fluoride (also called silver diamine fluoride) hardens the cavity sufficiently so that it arrests.
The present study aims to evaluate, through a controlled clinical randomized study,the effectiveness of silver diamine fluoride in arresting dentin caries lesions in primary molars when co...
The use of silver, usually silver nitrate, as a reagent for producing contrast or coloration in tissue specimens.
Fluoride-releasing restorative materials made by the sintering of metal (usually silver) particles to glass ionomer powder. Glass ionomers are fluoride-releasing cements that are not very durable. Sintering of the metal particles is a means of improving those physical properties that will make the glass ionomer cement more durable.
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)
Silver. An element with the atomic symbol Ag, atomic number 47, and atomic weight 107.87. It is a soft metal that is used medically in surgical instruments, dental prostheses, and alloys. Long-continued use of silver salts can lead to a form of poisoning known as ARGYRIA.
