Fluoride Release and Solubility of New Bioactive Restoratives used in Pediatric Dentistry Part 1 (Fluoride Release)
The goal of this in vitro study was to compare and measure fluoride ion release from a variety of innovative bioactive materials, including very viscous glass ionomer cement (EQUIA Forte HT), resin modified glass ionomer material (activa KIDS bioactive), and composite resin (predicta pulk bioactive). The test materials were created as molds with specific dimensions, and each disc was placed in a vial containing 15 ml of deionized Distal Water. The amount of fluoride emitted across two time periods was measured (7day, 28days). Ion selective electrodes (ISE) were used to determine fluoride release data. The GIC (highly viscous glass ionomer) had a larger release than the other two materials, followed by (active kids bioactive) and then the composite resin (predicta bulk bioactive), with significant differences between them at P<0.05. In comparison to the predicta bulk bioactive, the active kids exhibited higher fluoride ions release concentrations. The CGI, on the other hand, showed larger fluoride ion release concentrations than the other two materials.
