Dental structure (Enamel) The enamel is the most highly mineralized tissue in the body consisting of 95% hydroxyapatite (HAP) 4.5% water 0.5% organic matrix.
Dental structure (Enamel) Enamel is the visibl white part of the crown. It contains calcium phosphate, fluorine, protein and water. Thanks to this combination, the enamel optimally protects the interior of each tooth from temperature differences, bacteria and acids, as well as from the pressure required to chew food.
Mineralization• It is the change of physical stat of a substance from liquid and semi-liquid status to solid status through deposition of minerals (calcium and phosphate) .

TEXT Do not harm the patient1. Probable toxic dose (PTD): • PTD is 5 mg F/kg body weight. For a 20 kg 5 to 6 year old this would be 100 mg for a 10 kg 2 year old, 50 mg. F content of dental products or treatments may exceed these values for young children. For example, a gel tray containing 5 ml of APF contains 61.5mg F (F is absorbed more quickly when in acidic form.), 100ml of 0.2 or 0.4% F mouth rinse contains 91 or 97mg F and a tube of fluoridated toothpaste contains as much as 230mg F.

TEXT Do Not Harm the Patient2. Fluorosis: Fluorosis occurs when teeth are developing. The most critical ages are from 0 to 6 years. After 8 years, risk of fluorosis is essentially past. During the critical ages F intake in excess of 0.1mg/kg body weight/day can lead to fluorosis. This is roughly 1mg/day for a 1 to 2 year old or 1.5 to 2 mg for a 5 year old.

Prevention of Caries: 1st theory1st theory :Deposition of fluorapatite (FHA) in sound tooth structure: •Caries protection results from FHA being more acid resistant than pure hydroxyapatite (HA). •Deposition takes place when F replaces hydroxyl groups in HA. •This can occur pre- or post-eruption at neutral pH, or post- eruptively at neutral or acidic pH. At low pH, HA dissolves, then re-precipitates as new crystals which are larger and more acid- resistant due to higher FHA and lower magnesium and carbonate content.
Prevention of Caries: 1st theoryDeposition of fluorapatite (FHA) in sound tooth structure:Deposition of FHA is accomplished both by1. systemic intake of F during tooth development2. topical F administration after eruption. Professional topical F treatments with concentrated acidulated phosphate fluoride (APF) gels (2.72% APF gel contains 12,300 ppm F), is the most efficient way to accomplish this, especially when applied to newly erupted teeth (i.e., age 2 for primary molars; age 6 to 8 for permanent first molars and anterior teeth; age 11 to 14 for permanent premolars and second molars).

DEPOSITION OF F: FMaxium uptake cannot be exceeded.(3000 to 4000 ppm Fin outer 5 um) The F-rich surface can be abraded away.
Prevention of CariesBioavailability of F: A second theory of caries prevention asserts thatF in the vicinity of carious activity (in enamel fluid) preventsdissolution of HA crystals. Although this mechanism requires onlylow levels of F (less than 100ppm to as low as 1ppm), F must bepresent when the acid challenge takes place and therefore must besupplied continually.Examples of topical applications which ensure bioavailability arefluoridated drinking water and fluoridated dentifrices. A major sourceof bioavailable F is residual F in plaque and pellicle. F in plaqueminerals such as CaF2 or calculus or in protein complexes is releasedduring bacterial acid production.

Prevention of CariesSummary of preventive F procedures and recommendations:The older view of caries prevention was that FHA deposition in non-cariousdental surfaces should be maximized by systemic F administration duringtooth development, and post-eruptively by topical F treatments.It was believed that increased FHA provided increased protection againstcaries.Although implementation of high FHA deposition has proved beneficial, itdoes not afford as much protection as bioavailable F. Moreover, the highdoses of F required, systemically or topically (which often becomessystemic intake) are partly responsible for the increasing incidence offluorosis.
Prevention of CariesSummary of preventive F procedures and recommendations:Current clinical recommendations for preventive F measures are1) to determine total F intake per day from all sources in order to assessover or under F exposure2) determine caries risk3) institute a regimen commensurate with individual caries risk status whichemphasizes bioavailability of post-eruptive topical F (e.g. regular use of Fdentifrice and other home products if indicated)4) administer professional topical F treatments, the timing of which shouldalso be gauged to caries risk (This may not be needed in low riskindividuals) and5) administer systemic topical F if indicated. (The latter is currently underreview. Present Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommendations arepresented below.
