The seeded growth of calcium phosphates. The kinetics of growth of dicalcium phosphate dihydrate on enamel, dentin, and calculus.

Abstract

The kinetics of growth of calcium phosphates on synthetic hydroxyapatite (HAP), human enamel, whole dentin, and human calculus has been studied at 37 C at pH values from 4.97 to 5.10 held constant by the pH-stat addition of base. Following an initial induction period, dicalcium phosphate dihydrate (DCPD) crystallization takes place on the surface of these… (More)
