Non-invasive treatment of caries of temporary teeth with mineralization varnish

Dobrinka Mitkova Damyanova


The enamel is the outermost solid tissue of the crown of the tooth and is the hardest mineralized tissue in the human body. Tooth enamel, especially, suffer little morphological change after drilling and completion of mineralization. Mineralization of the enamel of deciduous teeth begins in embryonic development and ends around 3-3.5 years.

The surface layer /16-45μm/ layer without prisms is more than 60% of the temporary teeth and highly reactive and depends on the the pH of the saliva and fluorine applications. Dental caries, one of the most common chronic diseases worldwide (90% of young people). Caries is a disease of many factors, involving bacteria from the oral biofilm, carbohydrate diet and oral hygiene.

Dental caries is preventable, development of initial carious lesions. Changes in the approach to treatment - as a behavioral disease. Non-surgical preventive treatment is a new approach defined by new means. Search for new solutions for the prophylaxis or treatment, on the basis of morphological changes in dental tissues, capable of diagnosing and establish the effect of fluoride in childhood.
