INVESTIGATIONS conducted to determine whether substances will penetrate enamel centripetally have resulted in conflicting reports (Fish' and Berggren2) as to whether large dye molecules and silver nitrate and other reagents can penetrate enamel from its surface (centripetal penetration). Centrifugal penetration of dyes into enamel (from the pulpal -side) has also been described. Definitive evidence of rapid dye penetration through enamel in either direction is not available. Centripetal…

Effects of Fluorides on the Permeability of Human Dental Enamel to Inorganic Ions

TLDR
It would seem of importance to determine if the topical application of fluorides to human teeth would decrease the permeability of the enamel to small inorganic ions.

I T HAS been previously reported15 that topically applied fluorides are distributed unevenly over the surface of the crowns of teeth. Those areas which showed maximal uptake correspond to either

The Side Effects of Therapeutic Radioiodine-131 on the Structure of Enamel and Dentin in Permanent Human Teeth

TLDR
It is found that alteration of dental hard tissues starts after 6 h post-radioiodine administration, and both enamel and dentin appear to be altered between 12 and 48 h and after 8 days of treatment are extended in depth.

Influence of Electrical Potential on Ion Migration in Teeth 2. Quantitative Measurements of 1-131 Penetration by an Acid-Leaching Technique

TLDR
It is found that several hours of immersion are required before radioiodide can be detected in the pulp radioautographically; with some teeth studied, no penetration was observed in 24 hours; this was not the case when a positive electrical potential was applied to the tooth: the rate of penetration was accelerated by the potential.

Observations on the Permeability of Human Calcified Dental Tissues to Penicillin

TLDR
The deduction has often been drawn from the experiments of Stewart-Ross and Stones in laboratory animals that, at least in the adult, the cementumdentin junction of human teeth is likewise impermeable to dyes and molecules of similar size, and to tissue fluid.

Radiocalcium Uptake in the Calcified Tissues of Rhesus Monkeys at Various Time Intervals

TLDR
The specific activity ratios of the soft tissues indicated that their Ca at the time of sacrifice was in complete equilibration with Ca in blood, compared to the low specific activity ratio of calcified tissues.

TLDR
Radioactive materials have become available in recent years and several interesting and more dependable experiments have been made on the penetration of substances through the skin, with evidence that radioiodine penetrates the teeth and localizes in the thyroid.

Iodine in Evolution of Salivary Glands and in Oral Health

TLDR
The authors suggest that the trophic, antioxidant and apoptosis-inductor actions and the presumed antitumour activity of iodides might be important for prevention of oral and salivary glands diseases, as for some other extrathyroidal pathologies.

Introduction of Sodium Iodide into the Calcified Dental Tissues

TLDR
The development of a new method for studying tooth permeability, utilizing sodium iodide as the foreign substance, and it is demonstrated that radioactive phosphorous injected intraperitoneally or intravenously finds its way into the dentin and enamel of the teeth.

Rapid diffuse penetration of intact enamel and dentin by carbon 14-labeled urea.

TLDR
Urea was found to have interesting properties which may affect its anticarious activity and reduction of caries incidence has been reported after home use of a 21 per cent urea mouthwash and an ammoniated dentifrice with a high urea content.

Concerning the "Vitality" of the Calcified Dental Tissues

TLDR
It seems difficult to offer an opinion in a controversy with regard to the vitality of the hard structures of the teeth, because this question is so often the subject of discussion in professional circles that a commitment does not appear out of place.
