Carbonated apatites containing approximately 3.0 or 6.5% CO3 were precipitated in the presence of sodium, strontium, and/or fluoride at various concentrations. Almost all the available strontium and fluoride was incorporated into the crystals, whereas only a portion of the carbonate and sodium present was taken up. When incorporated together, Sr and F(More)
Eight strains of mutants streptococci and two strains of Actinomyces viscosus were studied to determine (1) their relative sensitivities to fluoride, lithium, and strontium and (2) whether lithium or strontium interact to enhance the known antimicrobial effects of fluoride. Analyses of variance of the data revealed a major inhibition of growth and acid(More)
