The aetiology of enamel demineralization during fixed orthodontic treatment and its sequelae are discussed. A summary is given of the various methods available to assess the risk of demineralization prior to active treatment. The best preventive strategy would appear to be an assessment of risk factors prior to banding, coupled with fluoride rinses, regular reinforcement of oral hygiene, and dietary advice throughout the course of treatment.
