Abstract

Secondary caries are responsible for 60% of all replacement restorations in the typical dental practice. Risk factors for secondary caries are similar to those for primary caries development. Unfortunately, it is not possible to predict accurately which patients are at risk for restoration failure. Fluoride-releasing dental materials provide for improved resistance against primary and secondary caries in coronal and root surfaces and have become a part of the dentist's armamentarium. This article discusses the improvement in the properties of dental materials with the ability to release fluoride. It is anticipated that in the near future, the vast majority of restorative procedures will employ fluoride-releasing dental materials as bonding agents, cavity liners, luting agents, adhesives for orthodontic brackets, and as definitive restoratives.
