It has previously been shown that the susceptibility of human teeth to acid dissolution can be reduced by the presence of various chemical agents in the dissolution medium or by pretreatment of the teeth with laser irradiation. Now synergism between these two approaches to improving acid resistance has been demonstrated. Extracted human teeth were… CONTINUE READING
