As glass ionomers have the ablllty to reload fluoride from outside source, the aim was to compare the recharge pattern of six glass ionomer cements after exposure to fluoride.
Materials and Methods:
Fuji VU, Fuji rx, Riva. Pink, Riva Bleach, Ketac Fil and Fuji IX Extra were investigated. The fluoride containing materials used were tooth paste and mouth wash (Colgate). Specimens of each material (n=15) were immersed separately in deionized water for 59 days. The the samples of each material were divided into three groups of five each. Two groups were recharged far 2, 20 and 60 min daily during three consecutive weekly intervals and then no treatment for one week. The third group was used as control. Fluoride release measurements (μg/cm2/day) were made in every 24 h. One-way and repeated measures analysis af variance tests were used.
Tooth paste recharged materials showed higher level of recharge. On day 1, the difference of fluoride release from different treatment groups of different materials accept for Fuji IX Extra were not significant (P>0.05). On days 7 and 14, the differences observed were significant (P<0.05) for all materials except for FuJi VII (tooth paste verus mouth wash) and Trial Fuji IX (mouth wash versus control) and on day 14 for Riva Pink (mouth wash versus control). On days 21 and 28, the differences observed were significant for all materials (P<0.05) except for Riva Pink (toothpaste versus mouth
wash), Riva Bleach, Ketac Fil and Trial FtujiI X (mouth wash versus control) on day 28.
A time tabled schedule of application of fluoride containing materials could help to achieve high fluoride release.
