AIM: The aim was to examine recent literature and review the caries-preventive effect of fluoride toothpaste in children. [] Key Method Relevant publications were identified after assessment of their abstracts. Papers were selected if they reported a prospective controlled design with caries data reported at baseline and at the end of the study. The targeted papers were critically assessed concerning design, methodology and performance according to a pre-determined checklist.
A systematic review on fluoridated food in caries prevention
TLDR
There is low evidence that the use of milk fluoridation is effective in reducing the caries increment, and literature on the effectiveness of fluoridation in foods in caries prevention is scant.
Non-surgical treatment of dentin caries in preschool children – systematic review
TLDR
There is limited evidence to support the effectiveness of SDF applications or daily toothbrushing with fluoride toothpaste in arresting or slowing down the progression of active dentin caries in primary teeth in preschool children.
A systematic review and meta-analysis of the effects of fluoride toothpastes on the prevention of dental caries in the primary dentition of preschool children.
TLDR
Standard F toothpastes are effective in reducing dental caries in the primary teeth of preschool children and thus their use should be recommended to this age group.
Guidelines on the use of fluoride for caries prevention in children: an updated EAPD policy document.
TLDR
The EAPD strongly endorses the daily use of fluoride as a major part of any comprehensive programme for the prevention and control of dental caries in children, regardless of the type of programme, community or individually based.
Topical use of fluorides for caries control.
TLDR
Considering the currently available evidence and risk-benefit aspects, it seems justifiable to recommend the use of fluoridated dentifrices to individuals of all ages, and additional fluoride therapy should also be targeted towards individuals at high caries risk.
Caries Clinical Trial Methods for the Assessment of Oral Care Products in the 21st Century
TLDR
It is concluded that methods focused on the detection and monitoring of enamel caries and root caries, by visual approaches such as ICDAS and instrumental methods such as QLF, Diagnodent, and Electrical Caries Monitors, provide viable alternatives to traditional methods.
Effectiveness of high-fluoride toothpaste on enamel demineralization during orthodontic treatment-a multicenter randomized controlled trial.
TLDR
To prevent WSL during treatment of FOA, daily use of high-fluoride toothpaste may be recommended.
Modified fluoride toothpaste technique reduces caries in orthodontic patients: A longitudinal, randomized clinical trial.

Inequalities in dental caries experience among 6-year-old German children after the caries decline
TLDR
This strategy involving a combination of regular toothbrushing with fluoridated toothpastes or gels and fluoride application has achieved an overall substantial caries reduction, indicating that caries-control strategies for heterogeneous risk groups can be highly successful as setting approach, however, activities targeting high risk groups still need to be strengthened.

Caries‐preventive effect of fluoride toothpaste: a systematic review
TLDR
Findings concerning the caries preventive effect of fluoride toothpastes in various age groups, with special emphasis on fluoride concentration and supervised versus non‐supervised brushing, reinforced the importance of daily toothbrushing with fluoridated toothpaste for preventing dental caries.
Fluoride toothpastes for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents.
TLDR
The effect of fluoride toothpastes increased with higher baseline levels of D(M)FS, higher fluoride concentration, higher frequency of use, and supervised brushing, but was not influenced by exposure to water fluoridation.
A Randomised Controlled Trial of the Efficacy of Supervised Toothbrushing in High-Caries-Risk Children
TLDR
In conclusion, high-caries-risk children have been shown to have significantly less caries after participating in a supervised toothbrushing programme with a fluoridated toothpaste.
The influence of toothbrushing frequency and post-brushing rinsing on caries experience in a caries clinical trial.
TLDR
Stated toothbrushing frequency and rinsing method after brushing were found to be strongly correlated with caries experience and caries increment and should be reflected in the design of oral health education material and taken into account in theDesign and analysis of caries clinical trials.
Prospective Study of the Effect of Post-Brushing Rinsing Behaviour on Dental Caries
TLDR
It is concluded that post-brushing rinsing with water, under the conditions of this study, does not significantly affect the caries reducing effect of a fluoride toothpaste.
Low-Fluoride Dentifrice and Caries Lesion Control in Children with Different Caries Experience: A Randomized Clinical Trial
TLDR
The data suggest that the child caries activity may be taken into account to recommend a low-F dentifrice, but in children with active caries lesions the low- F dentif Rice was less effective than the 1,100-µg F/g dentif rice in controlling the progression of lesions.
Reduction in dental caries with four concentrations of sodium fluoride in a dentifrice: a meta-analysis evaluation.
Information on the effects of fluoride concentrations above 1,100 ppm in dentifrices is not extensive in the literature. The objective of this meta-analysis was to examine and compare the anticaries
The Effects of a Supervised Toothbrushing Programme on the Caries Increment of Primary School Children, Initially Aged 5–6 Years
TLDR
It is suggested that a programme of daily teacher-supervised toothbrushing with fluoride toothpaste can be effectively targeted into socially deprived communities and a significant reduction in dental caries can thereby be achieved especially among caries-susceptible children.
A Three-year Clinical Trial of a Combination of Trimetaphosphate and Sodium Fluoride in Silica Toothpastes
TLDR
Results showed that subjects who claimed to brush more frequently or who claimed not to use a tumbler to rinse after toothbrushing had lower three-year DFMS increments, and there was no significant difference between the mean DMFS increment for those using paste with or without TMP.
Effect of a modified toothpaste technique on approximal caries in preschool children.
TLDR
The results indicate that the modified toothpaste technique reduced approximal caries in preschool children by an average of 26%.
