Effect of the addition of nano-sized sodium hexametaphosphate to fluoride toothpastes on tooth demineralization: an in vitro study

Abstract

                <span> 
                  </span><h3>Objective</h3> 
                  <p>This study evaluated the effect of toothpastes containing 1100 ppm F associated with nano-sized sodium hexametaphosphate (HMPnano) on enamel demineralization in vitro using a pH-cycling model.</p> 

                <span> 
                  </span><h3>Design</h3> 
                  <p>Bovine enamel blocks (4 mm × 4 mm, <em>n</em> = 72) selected by initial surface hardness (SHi) were randomly allocated into six groups (<em>n</em> = 12), according to the test toothpastes: without fluoride or HMPnano (Placebo), 550 ppm F (550F), 1100 ppm F (1100F), 1100F plus HMPnano at concentrations of 0.25% (1100F/0.25%HMPnano), 0.5% (1100F/0.5%HMPnano), and 1.0% (1100F/1.0%HMPnano). 275 more words
