  • The effects of changing the ion activity product of the remineralization solution at pH 4.5 (pKFAP 108-118) on the remineralization behavior of demineralized bovine tooth enamel and hydroxyapatite pellets have been studied. Solutions containing calcium-4.5, phosphate, and fluoride in acetate buffers were used. The /sup 45/Ca/F molar ratios indicated the formation of fluoridated hydroxyapatite in the enamel or the pellet when the pKFAP values for remineralizing solutions were less than 112. When the pKFAP values were greater than 112, the /sup 45/Ca/F ratios were found to be much less than 5. Also, when the pKFAP values were large (greater thanmore » 112), the remineralization patterns based on the fluoride distribution in the tooth (or pellet) were found to be different than when the pKFAP values were small (less than 112). The hypothesis that a pKFAP value of 112 is the demarcation between remineralization only and simultaneous dissolution-remineralization has been proposed based on these results.« less
  • Since integral radiation doses are important in the causation of cancers, this article proposes that everyone should carry a dosimeter that stores accumulated information over many decades. It is further noted that tooth enamel can serve as such a dosimeter. Ionizing radiation produces carbonate radicals, with a concentration linearly related to the absorbed dose. In this paper, the sensitivities of teeth to gamma and beta radiation has been measured.
  • Interferences in the atomic absorption of strontium by calcium and phosphate at the levels found in human tooth enamel were investigated for both air- acetylene and nitrous oxide- acetylene flames. In air-- acetylene flames, the interferences can be reduced by the addition of lanthanum(III); but perchloric acid, used for sample dissolution, causes a significant reduction in the calcium-- phosphate interference, so that a standard addition method can be applied, without the need for any chemical separations. An average recovery of 98.6% for added amounts of strontium to enamel showed the proposed method to be reliable.
