The purpose of this study was to determine by visual inspection and by scanning electron microscopy (SEM) whether commercially available, topical, acidulated phosphate fluoride (APF) and neutral sodium fluoride (NaF) agents cause surface roughening of five sealant materials: two unfilled resins, two filled resins, and one glass-ionomer material. In addition, the effect of treatment with 1.23% APF and sonification on weight of an unfilled and a filled sealant was compared to treatment with… CONTINUE READING
