Abstract
Artificial caries lesions were made on the buccal surface of human premolars, and the enamel was then treated with laser and fluoride. The acid resistance of the enamel was examined by demineralization in acidic solution. An increase in acid resistance and fluoride uptake was caused by fluoride treatment after laser irradiation. In addition, remarkable remineralization of artificial caries lesions was seen in these specimens after exposure to calcifying fluid.
