Although fluorides are now widely used for caries prevention, the mechanism of their action is still not fully understood. This paper attempts to review for the ' non-specialist ' the current concepts in the field, but does not attempt to provide a comprehensive literature survey. Available evidence suggests at least three mechanisms which might act, probably in combination, to inhibit caries.

The handbook describes in a concise, lucid manner water fluoridation and child and adult dental health, other methods of administration of fluoride and the physiology, toxicity and mode of action of fluoride. It is a pity that, in particular, the first of the 12 chapters, "A history of water fluoridation", is not made obligatory reading by the laymen who decide whether water should be.

Background: The present study was conducted to assess the relationship between drinking water fluoride (F) levels, dental fluorosis and dental caries among years old school children of Nelakondapally Mandal, Khammam district, Andhra als and Methods: A cross-sectional analytical study was conducted on school children aged years, selected by stratified.

when exposed to sugar there is an immediate fall in the pH in the oral cavity which is followed by a gradual return to resting values after about min. this is called the STEPHAN CURVE.

the bacterial plaque can concentrate the calcium and phosphate ions to a greater extent than what is normally in saliva (3x's greater).

The World Health Or-ganization (WHO) emphasizes that the disease affects about 60–90% of schoolchildren, the vast majority of.Community water fluoridation is the controlled adjustment of fluoride in a public water supply to help prevent tooth decay (i.e., dental caries or cavities) in the community.

Fluoride prevents tooth decay by preventing demineralization and enhancing remineralization of tooth enamel.
