Purpose: Fluoride varnishes are appealing topical fluoride preparations that may provide anticaries benefits. The purpose of this in vitro study was to assess the noncontact remineralization effects of a commercial 5% sodium fluoride varnish on white spot lesions (WSLs).
In vitro assessments of white-spot lesions treated with NaF plus tricalcium phosphate (TCP) toothpastes using microtomography (micro-CT)
X-ray microtomography (micro-CT) was used to assess the densities of white-spot lesions (WSL) treated with either a fluoride-free paste, or 0.21 or 1.1% NaF toothpastes containing functionalized tricalcium phosphate (TCP).
Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of two simulated saliva (SS) remineralization solutions comprising different calcium-inorganic phosphate (Ca/Pi) ratios on eroded enamel.
Purpose: The purpose of this pilot study was to assess the non-contact effects of a NaF varnish on the morphology and elemental compositions of sound and demineralized dentin in an in vitro pH cycling model.
The purpose of this study was to use scanning electron microscopy (SEM) evaluation to determine the optimal anodization conditions needed to generate niobium oxide coatings on titanium alloy dental implant screws.
The aim of this study was to evaluate the remineralization potential of three silica-containing NaF dentifrice systems in an intraoral model.
With more than 50 years of clinical success, fluoride serves as the gold standard agent for preventing tooth decay
The aim of this feasibility study was to evaluate the in vitro remineralization effects of four dentifrice systems using microhardness and fluoride uptake analyses.
SEM evaluation of demineralized dentin treated with professional-strength NaF topical pastes in vitro
Purpose: To qualitatively explore the effects of prescription-strength topical NaF pastes on patent tubules in a pH cycling model comprising remineralization and demineralization phases.
