The aim was to measure frequently and with precision the local integrated mineral loss through small areas of the natural surface of human and bovine enamel during in vitro demineralization using an X-ray photon-counting system (scanning microradiography). The method used was an adaptation of photographic longitudinal microradiography in which the attenuation of X-rays through the enamel is measured in the direction of acid attack, i.e., normal to the enamel surface. The mass of mineral… CONTINUE READING
