Abstract

An effective technic has been found to alter tooth structure which results in an increase in decay of these teeth. This technic specifically separates the systemic from the purely local factors in the development of caries. Twenty% solution of sucrose given orally 3 times a day for at least 7 days during the calcifying period resulted in over 100% increase in decay of teeth of white rats over litter mates not so treated. © 1957, Sage Publications.
