|Title:||Combined effects of carbon dioxide laser and fluoride on demineralized primary enamel: An in vitro study|
dos Santos, MN
|Abstract:||This in vitro study aimed at evaluating the efficacy of a CO2 laser (10.6 mu m) alone or combined with acidulated phosphate fluoride (APF) on the inhibition of lesion progression in primary enamel. The specimens were treated with/without CO2 laser and/or APF and submitted to pH cycling. Microhardness analysis was performed and the enamel mineral loss values were obtained. The groups treated with laser and/or APF presented lower mineral loss when compared to the control group (p < 0.05). Laser irradiation alone or combined with APF decreased lesion progression in primary enamel. However, the combined treatment did not show any significant additional effect. Copyright (c) 2007 S.
