A previous study showed that a sodium hexafluorosilicate-calcium chloride-based two-solution fluoride (F) rinse containing 6 mmol/l of F was more effective than a 12 mmol/l F sodium fluoride rinse in depositing F on tooth surfaces and increasing oral F levels. The present study compared the remineralization effects of these two rinses in an intraoral de- and remineralization model. The results showed that the 6 mmol/l F two-solution rinse produced greater remineralization in increasing lesion mineral contents and reducing lesion depths. The results demonstrated that the effectiveness of an F regimen depends less on the F dose and more on the ability of the treatment to utilize F efficiently for remineralization.
