Abstract
This study aimed to examine the anti-demineralization capacities of (a) tetracalcium phosphate (TTCP) and dicalcium phosphate anhydrous (DCPA) and 950 ppm fluoride paste, (b) casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate paste and (c) 950 ppm fluoride solution using optical coherence tomography (OCT). Enamel blocks were cut from the bovine incisors and treated using one of the above-mentioned three materials or deionized water as control (n=10). All samples were subjected to a demineralization gel for 1 h followed by a remineralization solution for 23 h. This experimental cycle was repeated for 28 days. The specimens were imaged using OCT at baseline and at four stages and measured lesion depth using image analysis software (ImageJ). Repeated measures ANOVA revealed that demineralization time, material and their interaction significantly affected the optical lesion depth (p<0.001). TTCP and DCPA and 950 ppm fluoride paste and 950 ppm fluoride solution showed significantly lower lesion progress compare to other groups (p<0.05).
