OBJECTIVES Milk is a universal dietary component and it is now recognized as an effective medium for the delivery of fluoride (F). This study sought (i) to evaluate fluoridated milk (2.5 ppm, 5 ppm, 10 ppm) for remineralizing carious lesions and (ii) to determine the optimum frequency for treating carious lesions with fluoridated milk. MATERIALS AND METHODS Artificial carious lesions, 90-180 μm deep, were created on extracted third molar teeth that were sectioned to produce specimens of 100… CONTINUE READING
