Aim: This study aims to estimate the cost-effectiveness from a societal perspective of seven dental caries prevention programmes among schoolchildren in Chile: three community-based programmes: water-fluoridation, salt-fluoridation and dental sealants; and four school-based programmes: milk-fluoridation; fluoridated mouthrinses (FMR); APF-Gel, and supervised toothbrushing with fluoride.

More studies on caries-prevention programmes among young children in high- middle- and low-income countries are needed, in order to assess the clinical and financial by: 1. Community Dent Health.

[email protected] by:   Prevention of dental caries in children is important in establishing oral health over the life course. The most frequently employed professional approaches for caries prevention include fluoride varnish and dental sealants. The efficacy of fluoride varnish in preventing dental caries has been established [Weyant et al., ].

Objectives. Evidence of the cost-effectiveness of fluoride varnish in the prevention of caries is not yet fully conclusive.

The aim of this study was to assess the incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER) of the community-wide application of fluoride varnish in the prevention of early childhood caries (ECC) in non-fluoridated : Carlos Zaror, Patricia Muñoz-Millán, Patricia Muñoz-Millán, Gerardo Espinoza-Espinoza, Carolina Verg.

Cost Effectiveness of Fluoride Varnish Application in Community Programs The cost of application ranges from $$19 per application Cost savings begins after the first 42 months of life ( years) due to the relatively low incidence of caries in the younger age groups.

The interventions were a complex dental disease management program, 68 OH education programs, 60, 66, 71 fluoridated milk and milk-cereal, 67 and a study comparing 5 different caries prevention interventions.

Economic evaluation of a pit and fissure dental sealant and fluoride mouthrinsing program in two nonfluoridated regions of Victoria, Australia. A recently updated Community Guide systematic review of the effectiveness of community water fluoridation (CWF) still found strong evidence that CWF reduced dental caries across populations.

Although CWF was found to have saved money in a Community Guide review, the conclusion was based on studies before year Objective. From a dental care perspective, we analyze whether the prevention of approximal caries by fluoride varnish treatment (FVT) or by fluoride mouth rinsing (FMR) could contain costs in an extended period of follow-up after the end of school-based prevention al and methods.

It is assumed in a model that, after 3 years of prevention with either FVT or FMR according to. A 2-arm parallel-group randomized controlled trial measured the cost-effectiveness of caries prevention in caries-free children aged 2 to 3 y attending general practice.

The setting was 22 dental. Fluoride and Caries Prevention In Adults Fluoride is a natural mineral present throughout the earth’s crust and distributed in nature. Some water supplies and foods contain fluoride, too. The mineral is added to drinking water in order to prevent tooth decay.

About 99% of fluoride in a human body is found in the bones and [ ]. programmes as part of the overall non-communicable disease (NCD) prevention programmes. Effective use of fluoride is an essential approach to prevent dental caries and forms a vital part of the WHO Global Oral Health Strategy (Petersen, Petersen and Lennon, ).

Population-wide automatic fluoridation. Dental caries remains a public health concern. In the United States, it is the most common chronic disease of childhood. 1 Globally, untreated caries in primary teeth is the 10th most common chronic condition in children, impacting million individuals.

The following questions and responses are provided to present the best available evidence and to help professionals design and evaluate community-based programs that use fluoride varnish: 1. December 3, —For more than half a century, community water fluoridation has been the cornerstone of caries prevention in the United States.

Fluoride is a naturally occurring element that has been found to have a major influence on the decrease in dental caries. 9,10 Although fluoride has both a topical and systemic action, the topical action is the more important, 11 especially when combined with supervised brushing of the child’s teeth twice a day.

Lennon, Department of Oral Health and Development, University of Sheffield, Sheffield, UK. Abstract.Fluoride varnish is a highly concentrated form of fluoride which is applied to the tooth's surface, by a dentist, dental hygienist or other health care professional, as a type of topical fluoride therapy.

It is not a permanent varnish but due to its adherent nature it is able to stay in. Many reviews support fluoride varnish (FV) as a caries-inhibitory agent.

Evidence from 6 Cochrane systematic reviews involving trials and more t participants further confirms the effectiveness of FV, applied professionally times a year, for preventing dental caries in both primary and permanent teeth.

The relative benefit of FV ap.
