Publication date: 1 April 2019Source: Journal of Molecular Liquids, Volume 279Author(s): Rasha A. Ahmed, Wafa A. AlshahraniAbstractMyriads of materials have been used for dental replacement. The success of these materials relies on the ability to accommodate with the host oral cavity which provides an ideal and unique environment for study of biological processes involving metallic dental aids. Indeed, the essential acids and sugars in beverages have both acidogenic and cariogenic potential, resulting in dental corrosion. In this regard, a new approach for corrosion protection of Zirconium surface coated with 1-Butyl-3-met...
