ABSTRACT
The purpose of this study is to investigate the residual fluoride concentration of fluoride tape in oral cavity which made by spraying NaF on carboxymethylcellulose base. After 1, 3, 5, 7 hours and 1, 2, 3 days of applicating APF gel(60seconds taste®, 1.23% APF gel, Group I), Fluoride varnish(CavityShieldTM, 5% NaF, Group II) and Fluoride tape(SCMC-T-5, 5% NaF, Trial product, Group III) in oral cavity of 27 healthy adults in their twenties, the result of fluoride concentration in unstimulated whole saliva which measured by using fluoride sensitive electrode made up to following conclusion. 1. Until 7 hours after application in every group, it showed significantly higher fluoride concentration in saliva than baseline value but at 1, 2, 3 days after application, there were no significant differences between measurements and baseline value(p>0.05). 2. Until 7 hours after application at every time, mean fluoride concentration in saliva was higher in the order of Group II, I and III. 3. 1 hour and 3 hours after application, Group II revealed significantly higher fluoride concentration than Group III(p<0.05), but there were no significant differences between Group Ⅰ and Group III in every time.
