    Effect of Resin Infiltrate Modified with Bioactive Glass on Hardness and Color Stability of White Spot Lesions
    Author(s): Reem Ashraf*

    Introduction: Resin infiltration is now used in treatment of white spot lesion, the incorporation of bioactive particles in such procedure would favour remineralisation of the defect increasing the surface hardness that might be considered a breakthrough the minimally invasive treatment. Aim: To evaluate the effect of adding nano bioactive glass as a Re-mineralizing agent to ICON resin infiltrate on enamel micro hardness and color change without compromising depth of penetration. Materials and methods: 20 sound human upper anterior teeth extracted due to grade III mobility were decapitated from their roots, all aspects of the crown were coated with varnish, leaving a 4 mm × 4 mm window and left in demineralizing solution to create demineralized lesions. Afterwards half of ICON resin infiltrate was mixed with 10.. Read More»
