Bürgers, R. ; Cariaga, T. ; Müller, Rainer ; Rosentritt, Martin ; Reischl, U. ; Handel, Gerhard ; Hahnel, S.


The aim of the present study was the quantification of Streptococcus mutans adhesion on ten widely used pit and fissure sealant materials and the correlation of these findings to surface roughness (R(a)) and surface free energy (SFE). Additionally, changes in streptococcal adhesion and surface parameters after water immersion and artificial aging have been investigated. Circular specimens of ...
