Ultrasonication as a method to study enamel demineralisation during acid erosion.

Abstract

The aim of this study was to use ultrasonication as a method to measure subsurface demineralisation of enamel. Polished human enamel samples with surface profiles within +/-0.3 microm were divided into 6 groups of 10 specimens. The groups of specimens were exposed to 0. 3% citric acid (pH 3.2) for 30 min, 1, 2, 3 or 4 h. The depths of the resulting lesions… (More)
