Abstract

The aim of this research was to test the repairing effect of “fluoride varnish-Duraphat” on demineralization of tooth in single and repeated applications. My question was “What is the difference between single and repeated applications of fluoride agent (Duraphat varnish) on demineralized tooth surface?” It was hypothesized that “ There would be a significant difference in the means of repairing effect of fluoride on demineralized tooth after repeated applications”. To test the research question and the hypothesis, experiments were conducted. The method used was taking the demineralized tooth and apply a fluoride-varnish and note down the difference in demineralization after single and repeated applications. For this, demineralization was produced experimentally by applying %37 Phosphoric acid on the surface of extracted healthy tooth. Then Duraphat solution which is introduced as an effective fluoride varnish agent was applied as single(which is claimed that it has a %77 percent effect) and repeated applications (two times by weekly interval) on demineralized tooth surface and the demineralization level on tooth was measured by a professional dental device called DIAGNOdent for each experiment stage. The results of the experiment was analyzed with the appropriate statistical test, it was seen that there was a significant difference between the means of the beginning and the acid application, beginning and the first fluoride application. However, there was no significant difference between the means of the beginning and the Duraphat Varnish’s second application. At the end of the research, the hypothesis was accepted as fluoride varnish has repairing effect on demineralized tooth provided that this feature is gained by at least two applications.
