DAN NEGRAIA, SIMONA STOLERIU, GIANINA IOVAN2, IRINA NICA, ANDREI GEORGESCU, CLAUDIU TOPOLICEANU, SORIN ANDRIAN, DIANA LACATUSU EVALUATION OF RREMINERALIZATION CAPACITY OF NON-FLUORIDE HOME PRODUCTS The aims of the study were to characterize enamel, dentine and cementum surface aspect after using non-fluoride remineralization toothpastes containing calcium carbonate and calcium glycerophosphate by SEM evaluation, to determine chemical composition of enamel, dentin and cement after remineralization products application by EDX assessment, and to compare the remineralization capacity of the tested products. Ten extracted teeth having no dental caries, erosive or wear lesions were selected for the study. The teeth were split bucco-lingually and mesio-distally in four pieces. A free window of enamel, dentine, and cementum (4X4 mm) in the cervical area of the slices was preserved. In control group the slices were subjected to a artificial caries lesion formation. In study groups EcoBio® (President Company), Bio-natural (Dentissimo, Swiss Biodent), and Arthrodont Cassic (Pierre Fabre Oral Care) toothpastes were applied two times a day, for 3 minutes during caries lesion formation. The surface topography has been analyzed using a scanning electron microscope and the quantitative and qualitative chemical composition has been evaluated using an EDX detector. Interprismatic and intraprismatic mineral loss is clearly visible at higher magnification in enamel samples in control group. Some areas of demineralization are still present, and also small areas of extern deposits are visible on enamel, dentine and cementum samples in the groups were tested products were applied. All the tested toothpastes increased calcium and phosphorous ion concentrations in enamel, dentine and cementum. The highest remineralization effect was recorded in enamel by Dentissiomo, followed by Arthrodent and EcoBio toothpastes. In dentine and cementum the highest remineralization effect was registered by Arthrodent, followed by Dentissiomo and EcoBio toothpastes.
