The dental cavities and periodontal illnesses were considered the mainly oral illnesses by WHO. In developed countries, from 60 to 90% of the children in school age are affected by dental cavities (Petersen PE, 2002). Even though fluoride had been used with efficiency since 1950, the excessive fluoride ingestion by children from 1,5 to 2 years old is, in average, between 30 and 80% above the recommended, being the toothpaste ingestion corresponding to 55% (Lima YB, 2001)
Compounds in gel, foam and varnish form, with PH acidification (3,6 – 3,9) or neutral (6,8 – 8,2), with reduced fluoride concentration (0,02 to 2,5%) and supplemented with phosphate and calcium (0,1 to 10%)
- Standard manufacture – does not require auxiliary technologies;
- Risk reduction of fluoride acute toxicity in children;
- Dental fluorosis prevention;
- Dental cavity treatment.
