Abstract
The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of commercial toothpastes containing sodium fluoride (NaF), stannous fluoride (SnF2), or casein phosphopeptides (CPP)-amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP)/NaF regarding their potential to inhibit enamel erosion. Twenty-eight 4×4 mm enamel specimens were randomly allocated into 4 groups (n=7): negative control; Pronamel (NaF); Pro Health (SnF2/NaF); Mi Paste Plus (CPP-ACP/NaF). Erosive cycles with 0.5% citric acid, 5 times, 3 minutes/day for 7 days were performed. After the first and last cycle of each day, toothpaste slurries were applied for 2 min. The quantitative analysis was accomplished using Contact Profilometry and Optical Coherence Tomography (OCT), complemented by roughness and qualitative scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis. OCT and Profilometry analysis showed similar effectiveness in measuring the reduction of mineral loss. A significant increase in the mean roughness values was observed on eroded surface and also on treated surface as revealed by scanning electron microscopy. The use of SnF2/NaF toothpaste was the most effective method for reducing mineral loss. As quantitative methods, OCT and Contact Profilometry showed no statistical differences. OCT, which was used for this purpose for the first time, has the advantage of being noninvasive, and therefore have the potential for clinical application.
