Fluoride uptake by the surface enamel of teeth treated with fluoride solutions in vitro and fluoride release into saliva after topical applications in vivo were determined. The fluoride uptake after NaF + Na2HPO4 treatment was higher than that after NaF treatment. The fluoride release into saliva was less after NaF + Na2HPO4 than after NaF application, pointing to a greater permanent fluoride fixation.

Kinetic Calcium, Phosphate, and Fluoride Dissolution After Topical Fluoride Application to Intact Enamel Surfaces

Accumulation in solution of products dissolved from the enamel surfaces enhanced surface remineralization to account for a net decreased dissolution as compared with dissolution without accumulation of products.

Effects of Various Topical Fluorides on Subsequent Mineralization and Dissolution of Enamel

Results of both processes, and the fluoride released from the enamel surfaces was measured, indicate that a neutral NaF gave the best results.

The Effect of Topical Application with an Organic and Inorganic Fluoride Compound on the Inhibition of Dental Plaque in Humans

No convincing demonstration of significant differences between the treatments could be predicted in view of the discrepancy in results at the 3- and 7-day test periods.

The F concentrations in biopsies taken 1 week and 8 weeks after treatment from teeth in children were almost identical, indicating that the acquired F is firmly fixed in the enamel for 2 months or longer.

Fluoride Concentration in Enamel Treated with 50% Phosphoric Acid and NaF with Subsequent Decalcification in "Acid-gel"

Acid conditioning of enamel surface does not predispose to an increased caries challenge in vitro.

Effect of Brushing the Teeth with a Fluoride-Containing and Fluoridefree Dentifrice on the Gingiva of Dogs

No retardation in the improvement of the gingival condition occurs after brushing the teeth with a dentifrice that contains fluoride. Gingival indexes and gingival fluid appeared to be related. The

Alkali-soluble Fluoride Concentration in Sound Enamel after Various Fluoride Applications

The alkali-soluble fluoride concentration in human enamel in vitro was investigated. Enamel slabs were treated with a single application of APF solution or a single or daily applications of

Dental erosion: progress of erosion measured clinically after various fluoride applications.

The study indicates the need for still better scientific measurements, as well as better practical control procedures, to consider both chemical and physical mechanisms of destruction.

Fluoride Incorporation into and Retention in Remineralized Enamel

The lack of appreciable fluoride loss from enamel with any of the above three conditions indicated a stable fixation of fluoride in the remineralized enamel lesions.



Fluoride in the Surface Enamel of Teeth from the Same Mouth

This study was undertaken to examine the surface-enamel fluoride content of various areas of sound and various teeth from the same mouth and the findings are correlated with the tooth age.

Fixation of Topically Applied Fluoride in Enamel

It was thought that agents that would effectively block the enamel, thus prolonging the reaction time and increasing fixation of fluoride under the conditions of these experiments, might be subjected to further testing in vivo in future work.

Evaluating the magnitude of fluoride inhibitory action in a model system in vivo found it possible that the fluoridized enamel surface might gradually release fluoride into the immediate bacterial environment and thus induce a local diminution in lactic acid formation or a reduction in the number of viable cells.
