The resistance of white spot lesions to acid demineralization when etched with phosphoric acid and sealed with a resin material was studied. Artificially created white spot lesions were sealed and re-exposed to an artificial caries medium along with unprotected white spot lesions. Examination with polarized light microscopy revealed continued progression of the unprotected white spot lesions, whereas no lesion progression was evident under the resin sealant. New lesions formed on unprotected… Expand
Progression of Sealed Initial Bovine Enamel Lesions under Demineralizing Conditions in vitro
TLDR
It can be concluded that filling of the pores in initial enamel lesions with the fissure sealant and adhesives 1–3 can inhibit further demineralization in vitro. Expand
Resin Infiltration of Natural Caries Lesions
TLDR
It can be concluded that etching with 15% hydrochloric acid gel is more suitable than 37% phosphoric acid gel as a pre-treatment for caries lesions intended to be infiltrated. Expand
Wear and morphology of infiltrated white spot lesions.
TLDR
Although both infiltration strategies had equivalent wear resistance to toothbrush abrasion, surface and morphological aspects pointed to improved surface stability and infiltration quality for the infiltrant material. Expand
Progression of Artificial Enamel Caries Lesions after Infiltration with Experimental Light Curing Resins
TLDR
Evaluating the influence of PC and composition of experimental infiltrants on the progression of enamel lesions in a demineralizing environment found that infiltrants should preferably have high PCs to facilitate inhibition of lesion progression efficiently. Expand
Improved Resin Infiltration of Natural Caries Lesions
TLDR
It can be concluded that resins with higher PCs (infiltrants) show superior ability to penetrate natural lesions compared with resin with lower PCs. Expand
Effect of caries infiltration technique and fluoride therapy on microhardness of enamel carious lesions.
TLDR
It was concluded that the microhardness of carious lesions increased with the infiltration of resin, while the final micro Hardness after a new acid challenge was similar for DF and IC. Expand
Effect of fluoride- and nonfluoride-containing resin sealants on mineral loss of incipient artificial carious lesion.
TLDR
Paired t-test showed that the mineral loss of incipient enamel carious lesions sealed with fluoride-containing sealants, Delton Plus and Helioseal-F were not significantly different from those of nonfluoride-containing Sealants,Delton and HelIoseal (P > 0.05). Expand
Infiltration of Natural Caries Lesions with Experimental Resins Differing in Penetration Coefficients and Ethanol Addition
TLDR
It can be concluded that materials with high PC (infiltrants) are capable of penetrating almost completely into enamel parts of natural caries lesions in vitro. Expand
Inhibition of lesion progression by the penetration of resins in vitro: influence of the application procedure.
TLDR
It can be concluded that the penetration of adhesives into initial lesions inhibited a further demineralization in vitro. Expand
Penetration of resin‐based materials into initial erosion lesion: A confocal microscopic study
TLDR
It can be concluded that prior enamel etching increased the materials penetration into eroded enamel and the Icon®—infiltrant presented highest penetration. Expand

The effect of sealant application and sealant loss on caries-like lesion formation in vitro.
TLDR
The results indicate that lesion formation does not occur subjacent to an intact sealant, and it is concluded that resin tags may be responsible for the ability of sealants to resist a carieslike attack. Expand
Internal Morphology of Surface Zones from Acid-etched Caries-like Lesions: A Scanning Electron Microscopic Study
TLDR
The internal morphology of the acid-etched lesion indicated that porosities were created which may allow access to the subsurface demineralized area of the lesion and could prove beneficial in facilitating remineralization. Expand
Two-year report of sealant effect on bacteria in dental caries.
TLDR
Preliminary clinical and radiographic findings suggest that there was no progression of the carious lesions, but further studies are needed before this technique can be considered an alternative to conventional procedures. Expand
Variation in the pattern of acid etching of human dental enamel examined by scanning electron microscopy.
TLDR
The results suggest that there is no one specific etching pattern produced in human dental enamel by the action of acid solutions, and differences produced by acids are difficult to explain on the basis of variation in chemical composition, and crystallite orientation. Expand
Clinical progress of sealed and unsealed caries. Part I: Depth changes and bacterial counts.
TLDR
A method for estimating bacterial viability in the study lesions has been developed and open lesions showed a significant increase in depth as compared to sealed lesions. Expand
Retention and effectiveness of a single application of an adhesive sealant in preventing occlusal caries: final report after five years of a study in Kalispell, Montana.
TLDR
The findings of this study clearly show that when this pit and fissure sealant is retained, its is effective in preventing caries in sealed tooth surfaces. Expand
Clinical effectiveness of an autopolymerized fissure sealant (Delton) after thirty-three months.
TLDR
The clinical effectiveness of Delton fissure sealent was studied in children and the number of teeth per 100 saved by sealant application (net gain) was 48. Expand
Clinical progress of sealed and unsealed caries. Part II: Standardized radiographs and clinical observations.
TLDR
The radiographic and clinical observations agreed with the previously reported two parameters in confirming that (1) sealed cavities showed little or no change in depth and (2) open lesions showed a significant increase in depth as compared to sealed lesions. Expand
Acid-etching of caries-like lesions of enamel: a polarized light microscopic study.
TLDR
The histopathologic effects of acid-etching on caries-like lesions of enamel were studied using polarized light techniques and indicated that surface losses and qualitative changes in the sup are similar to that of conventional acidetching. Expand

TLDR
The effect of acid-etching on the surface topographies of caries-like lesions of enamel was studied using scanning electron microscopic techniques and indicated that etching patterns similar to those of graphite were found. Expand
