Abstract: Objective: The objective of the study was to evaluate the rate of dissolution of dental calculus, to estimate shear bond strength of dental calculus and to analyze the structural characteristics of dental calculus before and after glycolic acid treatment. Materials and Methods: For the dissolution of dental calculus using glycolic acid, dental calculus in an adequate amount was obtained. After washing, the dental calculus was immersed in 1ml of a 10% aqueous solution of glycolic acid for 9 minutes. The estimation of shear bond strength of dental calculus was conducted on freshly extracted teeth using a universal testing machine. The evaluation of structural characteristics of dental calculus after immersion into the glycolic acid was performed using a scanning electron microscope. Results: The results of chemical degradation revealed a mean of 30% dissolution of calculus in glycolic acid solution compared to mere 10% in the control group. The tensile strength test revealed that the shear bond strength of calculus much lesser in test group than control. SEM study revealed breakdown in the calcified matrix of calculus in test group compared to irregular and coarse mass in control. Conclusion: Further studies are required at a larger scale to analyze the effects of glycolic acid’s calculus dissolving potential.
Keywords: Glycolic Acid, Dental Calculus, Scanning electron microscope, Tensile strength, Dissolution.
