Abstract

OBJECTIVES To study the preventive effects of chlorhexidine against root caries under oral biofilm in an artificial mouth. STUDY DESIGN Sixteen human tooth-root disks were inoculated with a salivary sample that was produced by mixing the unstimulated saliva of three adults who had no untreated caries. The disks were incubated in an artificial mouth fed… (More)
