Several properties of the fluoride ion at physiological concentrations are known which may be concerned with its actions in reducing dental caries. T h e properties that have been most thoroughly studied as a basis of the anticaries action are: (I) the incorporation of fluoride in the hydroxyapatite of the calcified tissues, both during and after their formation, thus increasing the proportion of the less soluble fluoroapatite; (2) a tendency to favour the precipitation of mineral matter from… CONTINUE READING
