ABSTRACT
Herein, we report the results of the in vitro dissolution tests, which were carried out by immersing the selected glass–ceramic samples in artificial saliva (AS) for various time periods of up to 42 days. In our experiments, the SiO2–MgO–Al2O3–K2O–B2O3–F glass ceramics with different crystal morphology and crystal content were used and a comparison is also made with the baseline glass samples (without any crystals). The bioactivity of the samples was probed by measuring the changes in pH, ionic conductivity and ionic concentration of AS following in vitro dissolution experiments. High resistance of the selected glass–ceramic samples against in vitro leaching has been demonstrated by minimal weight loss (<1%) and insignificant density change, even after 6 weeks of dissolution in artificial saliva. While XRD analysis reveals the change in surface texture of the crystalline phase, FT-IR analysis weakly indicated the Ca–P compound formation on the leached surface. The experimental measurements further indicate that the leaching of F−, Mg2+ ions from the sample surface commonly causes the change in the surface chemistry. Furthermore, the presence of (Ca, P, O)-rich mineralized deposits on the leached glass–ceramic surface as well as the decrease in Ca2+ ion concentrations in the leaching solutions (compared to that in the initial AS solution) provide evidences of the moderate bioactive or mild biomineralisation behaviour of investigated glass–ceramics.
