A method of marking human enamel so that reduction in enamel thickness by etching, bonding, and wear could be measured to within a range of -2.5 to +3.5 microns for the impression accuracy and to within a range of -1.5 to +3.8 microns for the measurement error, was devised and used to measure the effects of the above factors on enamel. For five unetched surfaces studied in vivo, the 85-day loss of enamel averaged 1.6 microns. For twenty teeth etched and studied in vivo, the etch removed 9.9… CONTINUE READING
