Fluoride intake from foods, beverages and dentifrice by young children in communities with negligibly and optimally fluoridated water: a pilot study.
UNLABELLED While the level of fluoride intake that affords optimal cariostatic efficacy without causing dental fluorosis is not precisely known, it has been suggested that the threshold of fluorideExpand

Influence of Fluoride Availability of Dentifrices on Eroded Enamel Remineralization in situ
Remineralization of eroded enamel by dentifrices containing similar sources/concentrations of fluoride was investigated in situ. Fifty-three subjects completed a double-blind crossover study with 3Expand

The Effect of Brushing Time and Dentifrice Quantity on Fluoride Delivery in vivo and Enamel Surface Microhardness in situ
While the clinical anticaries efficacy of fluoride toothpaste is now without question, our understanding of the relation of fluoride efficacy to brushing time and dentifrice quantity is limited. TheExpand

The fluoride content of foods and beverages from negligibly and optimally fluoridated communities.
In the spring of 1996, foods and beverages most commonly consumed by adolescents were analyzed for fluoride as part of a larger investigation. These foods were selected by interviewing 711Expand

In situ Fluoride Response of Caries Lesions with Different Mineral Distributions at Baseline
The present in situ study investigated the fluoride response of caries lesions with similar mineral loss but two distinct mineral distributions (low- and high-‘R’, calculated as the ratio of mineralExpand

Comparison of a dietary survey and the duplicate plate method for determining dietary fluoride ingested by young children: a pilot study.
BACKGROUND Investigators have attempted to establish the diet's contribution to the total body burden of fluoride in response to a reported trend towards an increase in fluoride intake. AIM The aimExpand

Dental fluorosis and caries prevalence in children residing in communities with different levels of fluoride in the water.
OBJECTIVES This study investigated the prevalence of dental fluorosis and caries in 7-14-year-old children residing in communities with negligible (NF: 0.2 ppm), optimal (OPF: 1.0 ppm), andExpand

Determination of elements in human femoral bone using inductively coupled plasma atomic emission spectrometry and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry
A method is described for the measurement of a range of elements in human bone to examine whether changes occur in composition to cause fracturing. Samples were taken from the neck of femur, andExpand

Evaluation of a desensitizing test dentifrice using an in situ erosion remineralization model.
OBJECTIVE To evaluate, in an in situ remineralization model, the ability of a low abrasion fluoride dentifrice containing potassium nitrate to enhance the remineralization of enamel that wasExpand
