The lipid content and composition of the enamel pellicle from caries-resistant (CR) and caries-susceptible (CS) subjects and their effect on its ability to retard the diffusion of lactic acid were investigated. Lipids accounted for 22.2 per cent of the dry weight of CR pellicle and 23.7 per cent of CS pellicle. The content of glycolipids in both groups was similar but CR pellicle contained 42 per cent less neutral lipids and 31 per cent less phospholipids. CR lipids had a higher content of… CONTINUE READING
