Effects of PVP-Iodine pH and Calcium Concentration on Fluoride Varnish Anti-Caries Efficacy In Vitro
Conclusion: PVP-iodine pre-treatments can be modified to enhance the rehardening and fluoridating effect of fluoride varnishes, thereby potentially improving their ability to prevent caries in vivo. Although numerical differences between groups were small, the addition of high concentrations of calcium paired with a low pH appears most favorable under the present conditions.

Conclusion: In this study, the lesion regression rates shown by mean LF pen values in all groups after six months encourages the management of non-cavitated smooth surface caries lesions with non-operative treatment approaches. Regular brushing and professional tooth cleaning seem to be effective for the management of WSLs on buccal surfaces, and resin infiltration or fluoride varnish might enhance the improvement of these lesions in moderate- to high-caries-risk individuals.
