Aim of the study: This study aims to comparatively analyse two chemo-mechanical caries removers, Carisolv and BRIX3000. The study involves physico-chemical characterization of the substances followed by assessing their impact on carious lesions using extracted teeth. Materials and Methods: Carisolv, a caries removal gel, and BRIX3000, a gel from papaya protein, were used in this study. Extracted teeth with carious lesions were maintained in saline solution, treated individually with the respective substances, and examined using optical and spectroscopic techniques. Results and Discussion: FTIR spectroscopy demonstrated characteristic peaks confirming the specific compositions of BRIX3000 and Carisolv. Thermal analysis revealed the degradation behaviours of the compounds, indicating differences in thermal stability. VistaCam technology showed significant reductions in carious lesions post-treatment with both substances, with BRIX3000 exhibiting superior efficacy. Conclusion: The investigation confirmed the effectiveness of Carisolv and BRIX3000 in treating caries lesions, supporting their potential as viable treatment options. Further, BRIX3000 exhibited greater efficacy and distinct behaviour compared to Carisolv, offering insights into their impact on dental structures. However, cytotoxic effects were observed with BRIX3000, warranting further exploration into its safety profile.
