Acid gel caries lesions were created in 3,100 human and bovine enamel specimens and studied with transverse microradiography. Small, significant differences were found. Human enamel lesions were found to be less demineralized, shallower, had a higher ratio of integrated mineral loss (ΔZ) to lesion depth (L), a lower degree of surface zone mineralization (SZ(max)) and showed less variability than those in bovine enamel. SZ(max) showed the highest variability. Between tissues, L differed the most… CONTINUE READING
