A quantitative analysis of mineral loss and shrinkage of in vitro demineralized human root surfaces.


Demineralization of dentin specimens proceeds at a faster rate than that of enamel. Although this is generally accepted, a quantification of the rate of formation of root lesions is hampered by the shrinkage of the lesions when these are dried prior to microradiographic analysis. This leads to a significant underestimation of the lesion depth and total… (More)
