The objective of this in vitro study was to quantify the amount of mineral change in demineralized dentin at pH 5.5 after the application of dental varnishes containing fluoride with casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate, fluoride and bioglass, or fluoride alone.

Name: Operative dentistry
The principles of minimally invasive dentistry clearly dictate the need for clinically effective measures to remineralize early enamel caries lesions. While fluoride-mediated remineralization is the c...
Using micro-computed tomography (micro-CT), this study assessed the inhibitory effect of three different types of restorations on root-caries formation under a cariogenic challenge. Bovine-root dentin...
Dentin remineralization is of clinical relevance in the therapy of caries and dentin hypersensitivity. This study is aimed at gaining more insights on a molecular scale, through IR spectroscopy, into ...
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and cysteine cathepsins (CCs) are two distinct enzymatic pathways responsible for the degradation of collagen fibrils in demineralized dentin. NaF and KF have been sho...
To explore the remineralization effect of bioactive glass NovaMin on demineralized dentin specimens, and to study the physical and chemical properties of formed structure at dentin surface. Methods...
This is a double blind, cross-over, controlled clinical trial utilizing thirty (30) adults to evaluate remineralization of early caries lesions.
The remineralizing efficacy of 3 fluoride varnishes were assessed in children with white spot lesion under 6 years of age ( children with early childhood caries)
This study will use an oral in situ caries model to study remineralization of enamel due to the action of different combinations of fluoride salts delivered from dentifrices.
This study is a randomized controlled trial involving 118 children ages between 4 and 5 years to assess the remineralization effect of Casein Phosphopeptide-Amorphous Calcium Phosphate (CP...
This study will be conducted to compare between recent over-the-counter toothpaste (Novamin & Fluoride) and regular over-the-counter toothpaste (Sodium Fluoride) in remineralization potent...
Adherent debris produced when cutting the enamel or dentin in cavity preparation. It is about 1 micron thick and its composition reflects the underlying dentin, although different quantities and qualities of smear layer can be produced by the various instrumentation techniques. Its function is presumed to be protective, as it lowers dentin permeability. However, it masks the underlying dentin and interferes with attempts to bond dental material to the dentin.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Calcium fluoride. Occurring in nature as the mineral fluorite or fluorspar. It is the primary source of fluorine and its compounds. Pure calcium fluoride is used as a catalyst in dehydration and dehydrogenation and is used to fluoridate drinking water. (From Merck Index, 11th ed)
A source of inorganic fluoride which is used topically to prevent dental caries.
An apparently hereditary disorder of dentin formation, marked by a normal appearance of coronal dentin associated with pulpal obliteration, faulty root formation, and a tendency for peripheral lesions without obvious cause. (From Dorland, 27th ed)
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Dentistry is the study, management and treatment of diseases and conditions affecting the mouth, jaw, teeth and their supporting tissues (Oxford Medical Dictionary) The work of a dentist ranges from regular patient check-up to orthodontics and surgery....
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
