PURPOSE: To evaluate the fluoride concentration in enamel after the use of different fluoride products and 48 hours after the cessation of fluoride use. METHODS: 16 enamel slabs were divided and treated for 15 days as following: Group A, with an amine fluoride toothpaste and mouthrinse (1400 and 250 mg/L(-1), respectively); Group B, with an amine fluoride toothpaste (1400 mg/L(-1)) and mouthrinse without fluoride; Group C, with a sodium fluoride toothpaste (1400 mg/L(-1)) and mouthrinse (250 mg/L(-1)). Chemical biopsy and multiple means were used to determine fluoride concentration. The data were statistically analyzed using the two-way ANOVA and Tukey HSD tests (P<0.05). RESULTS: After 15 days of fluoride product use, Group A samples had the highest fluoride uptake (0.19 microg mm(-2)) (P<0.05). 48 hours after the interruption of fluoride product usage, a higher fluoride concentration was found in Group A samples. Although all fluoride products led to an enamel uptake, amine fluoride products promoted the most effective long-term uptake.
