The Effect of Administering Casein Phosphopeptide Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (CPP_ACP) on ph Salivary and Children's Risk Caries Score
Journal of Medical Science And clinical Research
Remineralization therapy is a therapeutic method of caries prevention by applying Phosphopeptide Casein-Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (CPP-ACP) on dental caries in initial conditions manifested as "White Spot." The Objective: This study aims to determine the effect of Amorphous Calcium Phosphate Casein Phosphopeptide (CPP-ACP) to the pH of saliva and score early childhood caries risk in children. Method: This study is a quasi-experimental design with equivalent control group design with pre-test
... nd post-test. The subjects of this study early childhood Qurratal Ayyun all children of Banda Aceh were 30 children and their parents as respondents, and then divided into two groups, intervention group consisted of 15 children given the application of CPP-ACP, and the control group included 15 children. Analysis of data using paired samples t-test and independent t-test. Result: The results showed no differences between the mean values saliva acidity (pH of saliva) and the children's early childhood caries risk score in the control group were statistically significant (p> 0.05). Conclusion: There is a change in the average value of saliva acidity (pH of saliva) and the children's early childhood caries risk score after the application of CPP-ACP in the treatment groups were statistically significant (p <0.05).
