The influence of fluoride on in vitro remineralization of bovine enamel

P.C Lammers, J.M.P.M Borggreven, F.C.M Driessens

Abstract


Remineralization experiments using bovine enamel were carried out with 2 ppm fluoride or no fluoride added to the remineralizing solutions.

The group without fluoride showed (quantitative microradiography) significantly more remineralization in the first 50 µm of the lesion than the fluoride group.

It is suggested that fluoride may inhibit remineralization.
