This in vitro study aimed to examine the inhibitory efficacy of ZnF2 on dentin demineralization and collagen degradation. Bovine dentin specimens were treated either with ZnF2 or HCl-acidified ZnF2 (ZnF2/HCl) and then demineralized. Anti-demineralization efficacy was assessed by TMR as mineral loss (ΔZ). Read More
