After an initial demineralisation, an intensive fluoridation is capable of inhibiting the erosive mineral loss in dentine completely, which might be related to the presence of the exposed organic dentine matrix. Aim of the present study was, therefore, to evaluate whether fluoride is also effective when the organic material is removed. The study was a cyclic de- and remineralisation model over 5 days in vitro. Samples from human coronal dentine were demineralised with citric acid (pH 2.3; 6 x… CONTINUE READING
