Deviations of inorganic and organic carbon content in hypomineralised enamel
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2015
Objectives: The purpose of this study was to discriminate hypomineralised enamel of
permanent first molars from normal enamel by means of spectroscopic methods.
Methods: The present study was conducted using Multi spot Raman Fourier Transform
Spectroscopy, Diffuse Reflectance Infrared Fourier Transform Spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray
Results: Raman-spectroscopy indicated significantly more B-type carbonate and hydrocarbons
in hypomineralised enamel diagnosed as MIH (Molar Incisor Hypomineralisation).
From XRD analysis, no changes in crystallinity of the enamel apatite could be found.
Conclusions: Using multi spot Raman-spectroscopy, a significant molecular discrimination
between normal and hypomineralised enamel could be made.
