Abstract

The effects on surface enamel of an experimental toothpaste containing Sr-EDTA, sodium ricinoleate, and fluoride were compared with those of a commercially available fluoride toothpaste. Knoop indentations, before and after treatment with control and experimental toothpastes, showed no significant changes. Both toothpastes rendered the enamel surface less soluble after treatment.
