Microhardness of enamel and dentine of white rats¬í teeth under different conditions of the thyroid gland
The microhardness of enamel and dentine of rats teeth was investigated under normal and hypofunctional
states of the thyroid gland; also the change of microhardness was assessed, after applying
different caries preventive remedies: infusion of Azerbaijan black tea with 10 ppm F- and 3%
Remodent with fluoride varnish.
The results of the research led us to recommend Azerbaijan black tea with 10 ppm F- and also a
combination of 3% Remodent with fluoride varnish as effective caries preventive remedies for persons
with hypofunction of the thyroid gland and for children living in endemic regions for goiter.
