Experimental Dentifrice Remineralization/ Fluoride Uptake in an In Situ Model
During each of the four treatment periods, subjects wore partial dentures containing two partially demineralized enamel specimens for two weeks- 24 hours per day, except when brushing (twice daily) with test dentifrice. Following each treatment period, the enamel specimen chips were removed and analyzed using Surface MicroHardness and microdrill enamel biopsy technique.
