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.
