  • Bovine enamel and dentin specimens were overlaid with acidogenic Streptococcus mutans suspensions in agarose. In this model, the minimal demineralisation-inhibiting concentrations (MDIC) of hexetidine was determined in the presence of fluoride. A commercially available mouthwash containing 0.1% (2.9 mmol/l) hexetidine was diluted serially and added to the bacterial suspensions together with 0, 5.3, or 26.3 mumol/l fluoride (NaF). After 22 h of incubation at 37 degrees C the bacterial… CONTINUE READING
