Abstract

Objectives: Acidic pH and high fluoride (F-) concentration impair the corrosion resistance of titanium (Ti). Caries-preventive products contain high amounts of F- and are applied at low pH. The purpose of this study was to evaluate whether fluoride applied in different forms has different short-, mid-, and longterm effects on the growth of the bacteria Streptococcus mutans. Materials and Methods: Ti discs with polished surface were treated with a rinse containing 0.025% olaflur, a gel containing 1.25% olaflur, or a 1% aqueous solution of NaF (pH 4.5), and they were incubated with S mutans for 21 days. Control discs did not get prophylactic treatment. Protein assay analysis was performed at regular intervals to estimate the amount of S mutans. Scanning electron microscopic (SEM) images were also taken. Results: Bacterial protein quantity became significantly different only by the 21st day. Fluoride in rinse and gel proved to be superior to NaF in aqueous solution or no treatment (P <0.01 and P <0.05, respectively). However, the discs treated with fluoride in gel showed signs of corrosion in SEM images. Conclusion: The results suggest that the use of fluoride-containing mouthwashes might be the best and safest oral hygienic choice for patients with oral implants. Furthermore, olaflur seems to be superior to NaF for long-term use at low pH.
