MUNOZ MILLAN, Patricia; ESPINOZA ESPINOZA, Gerardo; NUNEZ, Gabriel  y  SANHUEZA CAMPOS, Antonio. Availability of Fluoride in Saliva and Biofilms in School Children Exposed to Fluoride in Water or Milk. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2015, vol.9, n.3, pp.393-398.

Caries continue to be a public health problem, due to their high prevalence and their severe effect on people. Currently in Chile, adding fluoride to water and milk are public health measures to prevent caries that are distributed in urban and rural areas respectively. Scientific evidence supports the availability of fluoride in saliva and bacterial plaque being the most effective prevention against caries. The goal was to compare the levels of fluoride in saliva and bacterial plaque before and after drinking milk, among school-children who consume fluoridated milk and those who consume un-fluoridated milk prepared with fluoridated drinking water, in the La Araucanía Region of Chile. A study was conducted of repeated samples of saliva and bacterial plaque in 165 children within the PAE program at 16 rural and urban schools. Saliva and bacterial plaque samples were taken before breakfast, saliva samples were taken 60 minutes after breakfast and bacterial plaque samples were taken 120 min after breakfast. The concentration of fluoride in saliva was found to be very similar regardless of the manner in which it was administered. So it was similar in children drinking fluoridated milk and un-fluoridated milk prepared with fluoridated water, and similar both before and after breakfast. In contrast, we found small differences for bacterial plaque, that are statistically significant. However, they may not be clinically significant as they are too small. These results reinforce the hypothesis that the strategy of adding fluoride to milk has similar results to adding fluoride to water.
