Effect of TiF4, ZrF4, HfF4 and AmF on erosion and erosion/abrasion of enamel and dentin in situ


Wiegand, Annette; Hiestand, Barbara; Sener, Beatrice; Magalhães, Ana C; Roos, Malgorzata; Attin, Thomas (2010). Effect of TiF4, ZrF4, HfF4 and AmF on erosion and erosion/abrasion of enamel and dentin in situ. Archives of Oral Biology, 55(3):223-228.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE: This in situ study aimed to analyse the impact of different tetrafluorides (TiF(4), ZrF(4) and HfF(4)) and AmF on erosion and erosion plus abrasion of enamel and dentin. DESIGN: Ten volunteers took part in this crossover and double-blind study performed in 8 phases of each 3 days. In each phase, 2 bovine enamel and 2 dentin specimens were fixed in intraoral appliances. One enamel and one dentin sample were pretreated once with TiF(4), ZrF(4), HfF(4) or AmF (all 0.5M F) for 60s, while the other samples remained unfluoridated and served as control. Then, all samples were subjected to either erosion only (4 times/day, 90 s) or to erosion and abrasion (2 times/day, 30 s/sample). Toothbrushing abrasion was performed 90 min after the first and last erosion with an electrical toothbrush and fluoridated toothpaste at 1.2N. After 3 days, enamel and dentin loss was assessed by profilometry (microm) and analysed by repeated measures ANOVA and paired t-test (p<0.05). RESULTS: All fluoride solutions reduced enamel and dentin loss significantly compared to the controls. Generally, eroded samples showed less wear than eroded and abraded samples. The protective potential of the fluorides was not significantly different and was only slightly, but mostly not significantly, decreased by abrasion. The protective effect of the fluoride solutions was similar in enamel and dentin. CONCLUSION: Tetrafluorides and AmF are able to reduce erosion and erosion plus abrasion in situ and are almost equally effective.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
