Acidul

Acidul information, interactions and side effects, Sodium fluoride chewable tablets for use as a dental caries preventive in pediatric patients. Sugar-free. Saccharin-free. Each 1 mg tablet (full-strength) contains 1 mg fluoride ion (F) from 2.2 mg sodium fluoride (NaF).

Active Ingredient: Sodium Fluoride 2.2 mg.

Other Ingredients: Cherry flavor, FD&C Red #40, mannitol, magnesium stearate, and microcrystalline cellulose.

INDICATIONS

It has been established that ingestion of fluoridated drinking water (1 ppm F) during the period of tooth development results in significant decrease in the incidence of dental caries. 1 Sodium fluoride tablets were developed to provide systemic fluoride for use as a supplement in pediatric patients from age 6 months to 16, living in areas where the drinking water fluoride level does not exceed 0.6 ppm F.

DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION

See schedule below to determine dosage. Dissolve in the mouth or chew before swallowing, preferably at bedtime after brushing teeth.

CLINICAL PHARMACOLOGY

Sodium fluoride acts systemically (before tooth eruption) and topically (post eruption) by increasing tooth resistance to acid dissolution, by promoting remineralization, and by inhibiting the cariogenic microbial process.
