Drs. Edward Lynch and Martin Grootveld (both Dental) co-authored “Fluoride Releasing Capacity of Newly Developed Atraumatic Restorative Materials” in the international online, open-access, peer-reviewed Journal of Evolution of Medical and Dental Sciences. The collaborative study included faculty from UNLV School of Dental Medicine; NITTE University department of oral biology and genomic studies, India; the global child dental health unit in Kings College London; and the bioanalytical chemistry and chemical pathology in the biomedical & environmental health department in De Montfort University, United Kingdom. The team developed two new and cost-effective atraumatic restorative treatment materials and assessed their fluoride-releasing capacities. Both biomaterials released fluoridethroughout the physiologically-relevant study time periods. Fluoride ion-release is effective in the prevention of secondary caries (cavities), and the materials could be considered a less invasive approach to managing holes in teeth.
