A thermogravimetric (TG) method is described for evaluating the substantivity of multi-functional polymeric materials that may be used as protective coatings for teeth. Applied to poly(butyl methacrylate) and poly(octadecyl methacrylate) film structures deposited onto model tooth surfaces from aqueous latex formulations, the method shows that while the latter polymer exhibits little substantivity, the former may be a suitable candidate material for dental-care applications.
