Figure 4

Histogram representing the mean area (percentage of total area ± SE) of resorption on dentine slides after 21 days in culture under different conditions. Note the significant decrease of dentin resorption by osteoclasts exposed to V4+ ions. No differences were noted between the same concentrations of V4+ and V5+ ions () ().
