    Abstract

    In confirmation of the work of Fehr et al. (1970), optical changes in enamel resembling early caries occurred when subjects did not clean their teeth for 14 days and rinsed their mouths 9 times daily with sucrose solution; controls not rinsing with sucrose showed significantly fewer enamel changes. Subject-to-subject variations in susceptibility to the experimental challenge indicate a possible role for studies of this type in examining relationships between environmental factors and caries initiation.
