This study describes the structural features of the interface between microbial deposits and root cementum in actively progressing root-surface caries lesions developed experimentally in six elderly individuals. A total of 18 specimens was examined by microradiography, and a further 18 by light and transmission electron microscopy after intra-oral periods of one, two, and three months. All specimens showed various degrees of subsurface dissolution of mineral and bacterial invasion of the… CONTINUE READING
