BACKGROUND Caries (dental decay) is a disease of the hard tissues of the teeth caused by an imbalance, over time, in the interactions between cariogenic bacteria in dental plaque and fermentable carbohydrates (mainly sugars. [...] Key MethodSEARCH STRATEGY A search was undertaken on Cochrane Oral Health Group's Trials Register, CENTRAL, MEDLINE and several other databases. Reference lists of articles were also searched.

ConditionsDental Caries
InterventionProcedure
Topical fluoride as a cause of dental fluorosis in children.
TLDR
There is weak unreliable evidence that starting the use of fluoride toothpaste in children under 12 months of age may be associated with an increased risk of fluorosis, and attention needs to be given to the choice of study design, bearing in mind that prospective, controlled studies will be less susceptible to bias than retrospective and/or uncontrolled studies. Expand
Fluoride toothpastes of different concentrations for preventing dental caries.
TLDR
The primary outcome was caries increment measured by the change from baseline in the decayed, missing, and filled surfaces or teeth index in all permanent or primary teeth in children, adolescents, and adults. Expand
Cochrane review: Topical fluoride as a cause of dental fluorosis in children
TLDR
There is weak unreliable evidence that starting the use of fluoride toothpaste in children under 12 months of age may be associated with an increased risk of fluorosis, and there should be a balanced consideration between the benefits of topical fluorides in caries prevention and the risk of the development of fluorideosis. Expand
[Comparison of varnishes and fluoridated toothpaste for the prevention of dental caries in school children].
TLDR
Schoolchildren showed a low incidence of caries using any of the three preventive regimens applied, among the three treatment groups, controlling for age, sex, and initial-caries index in primary teeth and brushing frequency. Expand
Efficacy of Fluoride in Inhibition of Caries among Various Age Groups – An Overview
TLDR
Current understanding of the caries balance, the process of demineralization and remineralized of tooth structure, caries risk assessment, the different levels of cariesrisk and a brief review of strategies to control dental caries are discussed. Expand
Cochrane Reviews on the Benefits/Risks of Fluoride Toothpastes
TLDR
The findings of the reviews confirm the benefits of using fluoride toothpaste, when compared with placebo, in preventing caries in children and adolescents, but only significantly for fluoride concentrations of 1000 ppm and above. Expand
Prevention of Dental Decay: Role of Fluoride in Dentifrices
Objective: To identify the different fluoride levels and compounds in locally manufactured tooth pastes and the dental caries status of Karachi, Pakistan. Cross-Sectional Study This study wasExpand
High-fluoride Toothpaste (5000 ppm) in Caries Prevention
TLDR
High-fluoride toothpaste has a clear role in prevention of dental caries; targeting those at the greatest risk, reducing and arresting caries lesions and thereby reducing the need for operative treatment in caries-active adolescents. Expand
A systematic review of the effects of supervised toothbrushing on caries incidence in children and adolescents
TLDR
No conclusive evidence is found regarding the effectiveness of supervised toothbrushing on caries incidence and there was great variation regarding children's age, fluoride content of the toothpaste, baseline caries levels and the way Caries incidence was reported. Expand

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. Expand
Topical fluoride (toothpastes, mouthrinses, gels or varnishes) for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents.
TLDR
The benefits of topical fluorides have been firmly established on a sizeable body of evidence from randomized controlled trials, and the formal examination of sources of heterogeneity between studies has been important in the overall conclusions reached. Expand
One topical fluoride (toothpastes, or mouthrinses, or gels, or varnishes) versus another for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents.
TLDR
Fluoride toothpastes in comparison to mouthrinses or gels appear to have a similar degree of effectiveness for the prevention of dental caries in children. Expand
Topical fluoride as a cause of dental fluorosis in children.
TLDR
There is weak unreliable evidence that starting the use of fluoride toothpaste in children under 12 months of age may be associated with an increased risk of fluorosis, and attention needs to be given to the choice of study design, bearing in mind that prospective, controlled studies will be less susceptible to bias than retrospective and/or uncontrolled studies.

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. Expand
Combinations of topical fluoride (toothpastes, mouthrinses, gels, varnishes) versus single topical fluoride for preventing dental caries in children and adolescents.
TLDR
Topical fluorides used in addition to fluoride toothpaste achieve a modest reduction in caries compared to toothpaste used alone. Expand
Enamel opacities and dental caries in children who used a low fluoride toothpaste between 2 and 5 years of age.
TLDR
There was no significant difference in the prevalence of caries in either primary or permanent teeth although the trend in both cases was for slightly more disease in children who had used the test paste. Expand
Clinical trial of a low-fluoride toothpaste for young children.
TLDR
There appeared to be little or no difference between children who had used test or control pastes, either in caries or in plaque levels, and the experimental toothpaste would appear to have a similar anticaries efficacy to that of the control toothpaste. Expand
Effectiveness of fortnightly tooth brushing with amine fluorides in caries-prone subjects.
TLDR
The highest fluoride concentration in the gel reduced the development of caries to zero, probably due to increased fluoride levels in the oral milieu ofcaries risk children. Expand
