In vitro study natural alternative material dental bleaching external extract strawberry fruit (fragaria X ananassa) : A Systematic Review


AbstractObjective: General, this literature review aims to examine the benefits of strawberry fruit (Fragaria x ananassa) as an material dental bleaching external.Material and Methods: : An initial search was conducted from PubMed database and Wiley Online Library to evaluate article about natural alternative material dental bleaching external extract strawberry fruit (fragaria x ananassa). The initial results of this search were 1066 articles. Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews and MetaAnalysis (PRISMA) guidelines and Population/Problem, Intervention, Comparison/Control, and Outcome (PICO) questions were used for manual selection.
