Abstract : Further studies were undertaken to test the feasibility of using metal films, deposited by electroless or chemical means, for use in the military dental program. The research effort during the past year was concentrated in the following areas: preparing for and conducting the in vivo tests, testing alternate additives, evaluating the effects of pretreatment on the silver deposit, deposition rate study of metallic Ag on ivory and enamel and application of brush plating to dental materials.
