Zinc-fluoride glass nanoparticles (Zinc-F) release several ions, such as fluoride, zinc and calcium ions, through acid-base reactions. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antibacterial and cytotoxic properties of Zinc-F. Antibacterial tests showed that a Zinc-F eluting solution significantly reduced the turbidity and colony-forming units of Streptococcus mutans and Actinomyces naeslundii, compared to that of calcium-fluoroaluminosilicate glass nanoparticles without zinc ions.
