ABSTRACT
The article examines the effectiveness of sodium metabisulfite in inhibiting experimental dental caries in rats and its effect on bacterial growth and metabolism. Sodium metabisulfite reduced caries when incorporated in a coarse particle, high-sugar diet. The sodium compound also inhibited microbial metabolism and growth.

    Adhesive bonding of resins to dentin surfaces requires the removal of the layer of debris caused by the cutting. Certain isotonic acidic solutions can do this rapidly. Five solutions were evaluated using cell cultures and pulp studies in monkeys. At concentrations above 10%, each solution caused...
