OBJECTIVES This study assesses the application of the focus variation 3D microscopy for the evaluation of dental erosion and fluoride treatment for prevention of enamel erosion in vitro. METHODS Human dental enamel disks were treated with Prevident 5000 (PV, n=15) for 1 week and compared with a reference group (PN, n=15) after orange juice erosion in vitro. A focus variation 3D scanning microscope (IFM) and a stylus type profilometer (SSP) were used to evaluate the erosion depths on enamel… CONTINUE READING
