DANIELA JUMANCA, ANAMARIA MATICHESCU, ATENA GALUSCAN, LAURA CRISTINA RUSU, CORNELIA MUNTEAN COMPARATIVE STUDY OF ACID ETCHING ON DENTAL ENAMEL
This experimental study aims to analyse the effectiveness of various materials used in demineralisation of dental enamel. This work aims to create a mechanical bond by filling the pegs with sealing material. In order to achieve this goal, five teeth were compared using different concentrations of orthophosphoric acid and exposure times. In this regard, five different tests were performed and the results were analysed using the SEM technique (scanning electron microscopy). These comparative analyses revealed that etching using 35% orthophosphoric acid for one minute and etching using Icon Etch for two minutes were the most effective.
