Coronal dental plaque from each of 12 caries-positive subjects (Group I) was pooled from "white spot" tooth surface areas and, separately, from sound surface areas; sound surface areas in each of 18 caries-free subjects (Group II) were sampled similarly. Two samples, one consisting of material from a root-surface lesion and another of plaque from a sound root-surface area, were obtained from each of another 10 subjects (Group III). The samples from Groups I and II were evaluated for: (1) pH… CONTINUE READING
