The aim of this in vitro study was to assess the remaining dentinal surface after carious tooth tissue removal with a low speed conventional bur and two chemomechanical methods, (PapacárieTM and Carisolv®), using the microhardness test. It was concluded that the hardness of the remaining dentin after carious tissue removal was lower than that obtained on healthy dentin, without significance between the different means of carious tissue removal (p<0.05).
