Evaluation of Total pH and Soluble and Ionic Fluoride Concentrations in Dentifrices Commercially Available in Brazil

Bardal, P. A. P. / Olympio, K. P. K. / da Silva Cardoso, V. E. / de Magalhaes Bastos, J. R. / Buzalaf, M. A. R.

To verify the total (TF), soluble (SF) and ionic (IF) fluoride concentrations in the main Brazilian dentifrices for comparison and quality control according to the current Brazilian Ministry of Health Regulations, 2000. Nineteen brands, from 2 batches, fresh or aged at 45°C/48 h, had their F concentrations and pH analyzed with a specific electrode and pHmeter. To analyze the TF, 0.25 ml of 2M HCL was added to 0.25 ml of the suspension of each dentifrice. This was kept at 45°C/1 h and 0.50 ml of M NaOH and 1.0 ml of TISAB II was added. To assay SF and IF, after centrifugation, the supernatant was used and the same steps described above were followed for SF. The analysis of IF was made by adding 0.25 ml of the supernatant to 1.0 ml of TISAB II, 0.5 ml of M NaOH and 0.25 ml of 2M HCL. Paired t tests were used for statistical analysis. The concentration of TF, SF and IF ranged from 555.7 – 1835.1; 449.3 – 1619.3 and 96.9 – 1534.6 ppm respectively. After aging, a significant reduction in the SF concentration (p = 0.00002) was observed, which did not occur for TF and IF (p > 0.05). Only the brand Colgate Baby’ presented pH 6.8. The other dentifrices had an alkaline pH, ranging from 7.1 – 9.9. Although the term ’soluble’ was suppressed by the new regulation, the dentifrices analyzed were in accordance to the Brazilian Ministry of Health Regulations, 1989. Keywords: dentifrices, fluoride, pH, quality control, stability
