Abstract

Dental caries has become an ever-increasing, important socio-medical and economic problem over the past few years and decades. It is the most widespread of all diseases. If we really want to cope with it and effectively reduce the incidence of this disease, dentists and the authorities bearing the cost of dental therapy must change their attitudes, for it is absolutely necessary that the main emphasis of dentistry be shifted from the still prevailing attitude of simple treatment to a program of prevention. The various methods of fluoride application provide safe, effective, and practical methods of caries prevention.
