Abstract

Intact human enamel was demineralized in vitro to obtain artificial caries lesions. Part of the lesions was then treated with different surface-active compounds and remineralized with a remineralizing solution. The other part of the lesions was de- and remineralized in the same way, but was not treated with a surface-active compound. The results indicate that none of the surface-active compounds do affect the remineralization of the caries lesions. Possible applications of the tested compounds in combination with fluoride, for the prevention of dental caries, are discussed.
