Prevention of erosive/abrasive enamel wear due to orange juice modified with dietary supplements


Wegehaupt, Fj; Günthart, N; Sener, B; Attin, T (2011). Prevention of erosive/abrasive enamel wear due to orange juice modified with dietary supplements. Oral Diseases, 17(5):508-514.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

The aim of this study was to evaluate the erosive/abrasive enamel wear after contact with orange juices modified with different dietary supplements.
METHODS:

A total of 96 bovine enamel samples were prepared and allocated to eight groups (1-8; n = 12). Samples were eroded (120 s) in 200 ml of the following eight solutions: 1: water (control), 2: orange juice, 3: water + calcium effervescent tablet, 4: orange juice + calcium effervescent tablet, 5: water + 0.75 g acid/base regulating powder (Probase), 6: water + 0.375 g Probase, 7: orange juice + 0.75 g Probase and 8: orange juice + 0.375 g Probase. After erosion, the samples were brushed with 40 brushing strokes (load 2.5 N). Enamel wear was measured using surface profilometry after 20 and 40 cycles of erosion/abrasion respectively.
RESULTS:

Highest mean enamel wear (± SD) after 20 and 40 cycles of erosion/abrasion was observed for the unmodified orange juice (group 2) (0.605 ± 0.240 μm; 1.375 ± 0.496 μm respectively). The enamel wear in all other groups (3-8) was significantly lower (P < 0.0001 respectively) with no significant difference within these groups and compared with water (control).
CONCLUSION:

Erosive/abrasive enamel wear induces by orange juice and tooth brushing could be reduced significantly by modification with free available dietary supplements.
