Caption: Fluoride tooth implant. Fluoride tooth implant with a set of model teeth. The implant (at centre) prevents tooth decay by increasing the levels of fluoride in the saliva to 0.7-1.5 milligrams a litre. The fluoride is released slowly over a period of two years by the implant, which consists of a glass composite pellet. The pellet is attached to a permanent tooth using a composite resin. Only one implant is needed to protect the whole mouth, regardless of which tooth it is attached to. The implants are cheap and easy to fit, making them very cost-effective. The implants were developed by Martin Curzon and Jack Toumba at the Leeds Dental Institute in Britain.
