In the spirit of National Children’s Dental Health Month, this paper highlights a few strategies that can be used to promote effective management of dental care for children.
Fluoride and the water supply
Synchrotron Radiation (SR) Wide-angle X-ray Diffraction (WAXD) and Small-angle X-ray Scattering (SAXS) techniques were used to assess microstructure of bovine enamel white-spot lesions (WSL) evaluated in a 10-day pH cycling model comprising three different dentifrice groups

Objective: Characterization studies on demineralized dentin are important in understanding, preventing and addressing dentinal hypersensitivity.
Clinical observations on the remineralization of stage 1 caries enamel lesions using a tray-based protocol: a pilot study
Aim: To demonstrate that stage 1 caries lesions in a moderate-to-high-risk young adult can be successfully remineralized with a customized protocol.
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.
