Monitoring of cariogenic demineralization at the enamel-composite interface using swept-source optical coherence tomography.

OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate enamel demineralization at composite restoration margins caused by cariogenic biofilm using swept-source optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT). METHODS Sixty round-shaped cavities were prepared on the mid-buccal enamel surface of extracted human molars. The cavities were restored with Estelite Flow Quick… CONTINUE READING
