Glass Carbomer cement represents a new generation of dental material, which mineralizes gradually into fluorapatite
, demonstrates good toughness and strength of material and better fluoride release than its predecessors.

glass-ceramics, Journal of Biomedical Materials and Research Part B Applied Biomaterials (2012).
Standard microbiological procedures were carried to make the double dilution of the Fluorapatite
coated Graft solution.
Accessory minerals are fluorapatite
, muscovite, rutile and titanite.

phases were considered because of their influences on the contribution and mobility of [F.sup.-].

and other phosphates," Mat.
In profile C, the weathered shale and protolith portions contained fluorapatite
. Based on the XRF analysis (Table 1), Si content increases from 52.3% to 65.2% in profile A and from 49.1% to 70.5% in profile C.
Phosphate minerals on Earth, like fluorapatite
and whitlockite, take their time to dissolve, they are also not readily incorporated into a water-based solution, which is why their concentration are relatively low.
The Mazidagi phosphate rock is mainly composed of calcite, fluorapatite
, and carbonate-fluorapatite .
