Abstract Increases of calcium, phosphate and hydroxyl ion concentrations, and addition of 1 ppm fluoride to remineralizing solutions increased the rate of enamel remineralization. Fluoride ions lowered the solution concentrations of calcium, phosphate and hydroxyl ions required for demineralization-remineralization equilibrium. The ionic strength of the remineralizing solutions (0.075 to 0.225 M NaCl) was without effect on enamel remineralization, but prevented spontaneous precipitation of the… CONTINUE READING
