Abstract


Objectives: This study analyzes the effects of ammonium hexafluorosilicate (AHF) on Veillonella parvula.
Methods: In this in vitro study, solutions of NaF (25%, 50%, and 100%), AHF (25%, 50%, and 100%), and SDF (38%) were applied to solid medium
cultures of V. parvula and Streptococcus mutans. The disc diffusion method was used for testing bacterial sensitivity.
Results: AHF was less effective than SDF but more effective than NaF for inhibiting growth of bacteria.
Conclusions: AHF could be effective for inhibiting the growth of V. parvula without the side effects of SDF.


Keywords
