Summary: Efficacy of fluoride as a cariostatic
agent is a well-established fact.
1,2] The conventional GICs have many attractive features such as adhesion to tooth structure, slow release of fluoride which may produce a cariostatic
action, good biocompatibility, and a shade similar to that of the tooth.
effects of various iron supplements on the initiation of dental caries.

sugar alcohol, a bacteriostatic agent, such as xylitol or sorbitol, are recommended during waking hours to reduce the sensation of xerostomia and facilitate speech and swallowing.
Fluoride produces a cariostatic

Liquorice root extracts as potent cariostatic
agents in pediatric practice.
Tooth decay is still the most important problem in dentistry; different therapies have been proposed over time seeking little loss of healthy dental tissue, especially by using minimally invasive operative movements and by applying cariostatic
substances such as 38% SDF, which has been used to minimize premature loss of temporary teeth affected by carious lesions, close to their stage of normal exfoliation.
benefit from water fluoridation is indisputable, but there has been debate over the past 60 years on possible adverse effects from fluoride on human health.
A concept based on possible cariostatic
The principal characteristics of glass ionomers include the ability to adhere naturally to enamel and dentin, the cariostatic
effect of fluoride release and moisture tolerance.
