In the past decade, a range of dental products have appeared which make advertising claims
around preventing mineral loss or repairing mineral loss. This review examines the requirements for effective
protection of tooth structure, and the evidence around technologies now available for preventing
tooth structure loss and repairing demineralized enamel, ranging from tooth surface protection and enhanced
fluoride uptake through to calcium compounds, unstabilized amorphous calcium phosphate, tricalcium
phosphate, and casein phosphopeptide - amorphous calcium phosphate.
Keywords: Remineralization, fluorides, calcium phosphates, tricalcium phosphate, casein phosphopeptides.
