The use of topical fluorides may result in a significant reduction in caries as the fluoride gets integrated into the enamel matrix, hardening the structure and making it more resistant to demineralization. Topical application of fluoride is available via: Fluoride-containing toothpastes; Professionally-applied topical fluoride treatment. examples of professional topical fluoride applications: gels (thixotropic), prophy paste (4, - 20, ppm), restorative materials (sealant, glass ionomers) professionally applied topical agents and concentrations: NaF (sodium fluoride), APF (acidulated phosphate fluoride), all patients as part of complete preventive program, not.

  Fluoride therapy is widely used to prevent dental caries. Evidence have shown that a constantly maintained low level of fluoride in oral environment is most effective in caries prevention against the earlier popular belief of being it most beneficial against . The topical application of fluoride is a generally recommended treatment for children through the age of eighteen and can also be used to treat adults “at-risk” for dental cavities. Thus, this code can reflect coverage of both pediatric and adult use of topical fluoride. Fluoride is an element that helps slow the progress of tooth decay by increasing the rate of enamel mineralization, and.

8, Community Dental Health Services Research Unit, Cited by: Professionally-Applied and Prescription-Strength, Home-Use Topical Fluoride Agents for Caries Prevention Clinical Practice Guideline () A panel of experts convened by the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs presents an evidence-based clinical practice guideline and systematic review on professionally-applied and prescription-strength, home-use topical fluoride agents for caries.

Topical fluorides in dentistry 1. TOPICAL FLUORIDES IN DENTISTRY INTRODUCTION Fluorine is a member of the halogen family and is the most electronegative and reactive of all the elements. The word fluorine is derived from the latin term ‘Fluore’ meaning to flow.

Its selective action on the hard tissues of the body attributes significantly to prevention and control of dental caries. The use of professionally applied topical fluorides for the prevention and control of dental caries in individual patients should be considered as part of an overall preventive programme for the patient, based on an assessment of the individual patient’s risk for caries and their exposure to other sources of fluoride.

Editor's note: See the summary of these topical fluoride recommendations bound into this issue of JADA after page The American Dental Association Council on Scientific Affairs thanks the members of the Expert Panel on Professionally Applied Topical Fluoride.

Background. The adjustment of the fluoride level in community water supplies to optimal concentration is the most beneficial and inexpensive method of reducing the occurrence of caries. 2 Long-term use of fluorides has reduced the cost of oral health care for children by as much as 50 percent.

3 When public water is fluoridated to an optimal level, there is a 35 percent reduction in decayed. applied topical fluoride. The dental profession is committed to delivering the highest quality of care to individual patients and applying advance-ments in technology and sci-ence to continually improve the oral health status of the U.S.

population. Toward this end, the ADA convened the expert panel on professionally applied topical fluoride to. Change in caries prevalence after implementation of a fluoride varnish program A comparison of the costs and patient acceptability of professionally applied topical fluoride.

Self Applied Topical Fluorides Self applied fluorides products are usually bought and dispended by the individual patient but at the recommendation of a dental professional. These fluoride products are of low concentration ranging from ppm or mgF/ml.

The self applied fluoride usually are: 1. Fluoride Dentifrices 2. Fluoride. Professionally-applied topical fluoride treatments are effi- cacious in reducing prevalence of dental caries.

The most commonly used agents for professionally-applied fluoride treatments are five percent sodium fluoride varnish (NaFV; 22, ppm F) and percent acidulated phosphate fluo-ride. This paper reviews the use of professionally applied topical fluorides (PATF) in caries prevention. PATFs are indicated for children and adults with one or more decayed smooth surfaces and/or.

OAn Evaluation of the Use of Professional (Operator-applied) Topical Fluorides.O J Dent Res ; Feb: 69 (Spec Iss):   Dentists provide professional fluoride treatments in the form of a highly concentrated rinse, foam, gel, or varnish.

The treatment may be applied with a swab, brush, tray, or mouthwash. Methods: The study population was a convenience sample of high‐risk children from the York Region and the city of Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, who had been identified as requiring fluoride therapy (n=).

Children received from dental hygienists either fluoride foam applied in trays or fluoride varnish painted on tooth surfaces. The use of specific topical fluoride agents (sodium, stannous, and acidulated phosphate fluoride) in professionally applied and prescription-strength, home-use topical fluoride products (mouthrinses, varnishes, gels, foams, and prophylaxis pastes) by people at a high risk of developing caries was the focus of the report.

Methods: Insurance claims f children, for treatment provided by 1, different dentists, were analyzed to look for associations between frequency of use of professionally applied topical fluoride and use of interproximal restorations.

The average follow‐up period for the children included in the analysis was years, with the. the use of topical fluoride and other preventive strategies, with topical fluoride the only strategy given a strong recommendation based on current published literature.

Availability Most fluoride gel and foam applications are delivered in a dental office by a dental professional. These higher strength products, if used in the home, must be prescribed by a dentist or physician.The prescription products for home use are more effective than over-the-counter gels, pastes, and rinses because they contain much higher concentrations of fluoride, said Dr.

Frantsve-Hawley.People at high risk for caries can safely protect their teeth by applying their own gels, pastes, and rinses with prescription-level concentrations of fluoride, the American Dental Association (ADA) said today in its first-ever guidelines on these products.

The recommendation was included in guidelines on prescription topical fluoride products that the ADA updated for the first time since
