Results Part II

Demineralization assessed by QLF is shown in Table 4. The Proseal group had the least amount of fluorescence loss followed by the Vanish group. Aegis-Ortho group, MI Paste group and the control group (Transbond) had the most fluorescence loss and were not different significantly. Demineralization assessed by CLSM is shown in Table 5. No detectable lesion depth was seen in any of the specimens of Pro-seal and Vanish groups. The greatest lesion depth was found in the control group (Transbond), but it was not different significantly from Aegis-Ortho and MI Paste.
