Abstract

The aim of this study was to analyze the effect of a topical gel containing gum Arabic on demineralized enamel hardness after using a 1% citric acid solution. Bovine teeth (n = 27) were used for this study. Friedman and Kruskal-Wallis statistical tests were used to analyze the data. The results indicated that there was an increase in tooth enamel hardness after the application of the gel; however, the initial hardness could not be completely restored. The highest increase in enamel hardness was observed in the 96 min exposure duration group.
