The purpose of this review is to highlight recent nanotechnological developments for remineralization of incipient caries lesions as well as biomimetic strategies for enamel synthesis based on the application of nanotechnology. Analysis of in vitro data indicates that apatite nanoparticles might be effective in reversing lesion progression in the outer but not in the deeper part of early caries lesions. To control caries-induced demineralization, investigators have developed calcium and… CONTINUE READING
