ABSTRACT
A conference paper on the chemical and metabolic changes in the enamel of erupted teeth is presented. The author believes that human dental enamel contains organic matter due to successes in staining enamel, which demonstrates that chemical and metabolic changes take place. Conclusive evidence of this, he writes, could lead to methods of controlling the chemical changes to prevent tooth decay.

    For many years after the discovery of its caries preventive effect, fluoride was thought to be primarily active by lowering the solubility of the apatitic mineral phase of the dental hard tissues. Recent findings have shed new light on the mechanisms by which fluoride inhibits or delays dental...
