Agents to Maintain Tooth Integrity: An Equilibrium between Remineralization and Demineralization - A Review
Abstract:
Changing concepts of dentistry have the aim to manage initial caries lesions with the help of remineralizing agents in an attempt to arrest or revert the disease progression by the process of depositing calcium and phosphate ions in enamel and hence, gaining net mineral loss. Concentrating mainly on prevention and early intervention of caries, minimally invasive dentistry’s first basic principle is the remineralization of early carious lesions. The purpose of this article is to review current knowledge and technologies for tooth remineralization and their applications in clinical practices.
