Clinical effect and mechanism of cariostatic action of fluoride-containing toothpastes: a review.

Abstract

Caries reduction has been observed in certain parts of the western world. The reduction coincides with the timing of the introduction of fluoride-containing toothpastes and no other factors can explain the caries reduction. It is possible that improved oral hygiene and use of fluoride have a synergistic effect.
