Animal caries models for evaluating fluoride dentifrices.


To determine the ability of animal caries models to evaluate the cariostatic potential of fluoride dentifrices, we examined four different coronal caries models. These currently used rat caries models were: Francis' hypomineralized area model, Gaffar's CARA rat model, the Connecticut model, and the Indiana model. Available data indicated that all of these… (More)
