Progression of Active Microcavitated Carious Lesions on Primary Molar Occlusal Surfaces

2019-10-21 12:45:34 | BioPortfolio


Objective: To verify the progression of active microcavitated carious lesions on occlusal surfaces of primary molars after the orientation of the brushing technique associated with fluoride dentifrice compared to resin sealant, through a 12-month randomized clinical trial. Methodology: We selected 22 children from 4 to 9 years old from the public school system of the city of Juazeiro do Norte-Ceará, with at least one primary molar presenting an active caries lesion score 3 of the International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS). Randomization was performed en bloc and stratified by two conditions (age and caries experience). The selected teeth were divided into two groups: the first (G1) was submitted to brushing with fluoridated toothpaste; and the other group (G2) to the resin sealing technique, whose application of the material was performed under absolute or relative isolation, selected through a second randomization. The molars undergoing treatment were evaluated at 6- and 12-month returns. Caries progression was evaluated according to the type of treatment, dental group and sealant retention by the Chi-square test. For cost analysis, the variance test (ANOVA) was used.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Poisoning that results from chronic or acute ingestion, injection, inhalation, or skin absorption of FLUORIDE compounds.

A sodium fluoride solution, paste or powder, which has been acidulated to pH 3 to 4 and buffered with a phosphate. It is used in the prevention of dental caries.
