    Cross-sectional visual comparison of remineralization efficacy of various agents on early smooth surface caries of primary teeth with swept source optical coherence tomography

    Purpose Sweptsource optical coherence tomography (SS-OCT) permits cross-sectional observation of surface/subsurface characteristics of enamel including early carious lesions (ECL) or remineralization non-invasively.This study aimed to visually compare the cross-sectional remineralizing efficacy of various agents on ICDAS-II scores-1&2 by using SS-OCT and histology. Methods Baseline SS-OCT (grey-scale/false-colour) and histology was performed on the randomly selected two samples with scores-1&2. Four remineralizing agents [fluoride-varnish (FV), CPP-ACP, nanohydroxy-paste (NHP) and silver-diamine-fluoride (SDF)]were evaluated for 2-or 6-weeks post-remineralization using SS-OCT and histology. Results Score-1&2 baseline SS-OCT images showed a linear-shaped demineralization with dentino-enamel junction (DEJ) visible; and ...
