Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Plaque pH changes on rat molars subjected to cariogenic challenge were measured with an antimony microelectrode. Measurements were made after feeding one of seven different reference or snack foods. Resting plaque pH was measured after fasting and minimum plaque pH after feeding the various foods. This reproducible technique may be of use in determining the cariogenic potential of foods.
