Özet

Fluoride released from restorative materials decreases demineralization, increases remineralization, and inhibits secondary caries with its antibacterial effect. The use of fluoride-releasing dental materials in pediatric dentistry has currently gained importance. Conventional glass ionomer cements (high-viscosity glass and cermet ionomer cements), resin-modified glass ionomer cements, nano-ionomer cements, compomers, glass carbomers, giomers and fluoride-containing composites are among the fluoride-releasing dental materials. In this study, fluoride-releasing properties of restorative dental materials used in pediatric dentistry were reviewed with respect to the current literature.
