ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to compare and evaluate the remineralization effect of three types of fluoride varnishes on demineralized enamel of primary teeth. 40 primary teeth were decalcified by soaking them in artificial acidic solution and stored at 37℃ for 7 days. Then 3 varnishes - Cavity shieldTM, V varnishTM and MI varnishTM were applied respectively one time a week, for 3 weeks on the demineralized enamel surface. For the first week, MI varnishTM showed the highest microhardness value, V varnishTM was in second position, and Cavity shieldTM showed the lowest microhardness value. However, there was no significant difference among the three groups(p > 0.05). For the second week, V varnishTM showed the highest microhardness value, and MI varnishTM came next in second position noting no significant difference (p > 0.05). Cavity shieldTM was significantly lower than the other groups (p < 0.05). For the third week, V varnishTM showed the highest microhardness value, noting a significant difference from the other groups (p < 0.05). MI varnishTM came next, while Cavity shieldTM showed the lowest microhardness value. However, there was no significant difference between MI varnishTM and Cavity shieldTM (p > 0.05). The increase in the microhardness of groups V varnishTM and MI varnishTM were higher than that of group Cavity shieldTM (p < 0.05), while no significant difference was noted between groups V varnishTM and MI varnishTM (p > 0.05).
