The intra-oral enamel demineralization test (IEDT) was introduced by Brudevold et al. (1984). This caries model involves human subjects wearing palatal appliances each holding eight bovine enamel blocks covered by a bacterial cell layer prepared by the harvesting of cultures of Streptococcus mutants (test plaque). The original model used the iodide permeability test for assessment of the extent of demineralization of bovine enamel blocks resulting from acid production by the test plaque after… CONTINUE READING
