The aim of this study is to determine the effectiveness of fluoride varnishes in the prevention of dental caries lesions in erupting permanent first molars, in high-risk patients. Using as reference ICDAS criteria, when the success means that the surface maintain an ICDAS value 0 and failure that has change in ICDAS value 0 to 1.
Sample: The sample comprise 180 patients between 6-7 years old with high-risk of dental caries.
Study design: It proposed an experimental design randomized into 3 groups according to the frequency of topical fluoride application.(Group A: every 6 month; Group B: every 3 month; Group C: positive control).
Allocation: Randomized, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Single Blind (Investigator), Primary Purpose: Prevention
Fluoride Varnish, Control Group
