On the other hand, the possible antibacterial action of orthophosphoric acid when applied on tooth structures, (17,18) in addition to the increase in micropores on the surface where it is applied after partial dissolution of prismatic structures, (19) with an increase in its microscopic rugosity and surface energy (which converts the acid in a proton donor and the enamel in a receiver), should be evaluated by comparing the integration of smear layer with adhesive systems, (16) which is triggered by the action of self-etching systems on dental tissues-a factor that should always be considered and assessed in the decision of using any of the two systems-.
But the anti-fluoridation body, representing all 26 local councils, pointed to a safety sheet from the manufacturers of orthophosphoric acid which states: "The acid can cause burns, is harmful if swallowed and in contact with the skin, may be harmful through inhalation.
