Dental caries is a highly prevalent diet-related disease and is a major public health problem. A goal of modern dentistry is to manage non-cavitated caries lesions non-invasively through remineralization in an attempt to prevent disease progression and improve aesthetics, strength, and function. Remineralization is defined as the process whereby calcium and phosphate ions are supplied from a source external to the tooth to promote ion deposition into crystal voids in demineralized enamel, to…

TLDR
This review re-examines the philosophy behind non-fluoridated remineralisation, their mode of action, availability in the market and evidence-based studies of the most promising advancements in reminalisation approaches.
Recent Advances in Remineralization Therapies for Caries Lesions
TLDR
While several of the new remineralization strategies have progressed significantly in recent years, for most of them, the evidence is still insufficient to assess their true clinical potential.
Enhanced Remineralisation of Tooth Enamel Using Casein Phosphopeptide-Amorphous Calcium Phosphate Complex: A Review
The protective effects of milk and milk products against dental caries, due to micellar casein or caseinopeptide derivatives, have been demonstrated in various animal and human in situ studies. Among

TLDR
The present article reviews about the various agents that enhance and promote remineralization of tooth structure and their implementation into clinical practice.
State of the Art Enamel Remineralization Systems: The Next Frontier in Caries Management
TLDR
The rationale for non-fluoride remineralization and the mechanism of action, challenges, and evidence behind some of the most promising advances in enamel reminalization therapies are discussed.
Fluorides and non-fluoride remineralization systems.
TLDR
There is a large amount of clinical evidence supporting the potent caries preventive effect of fluoride toothpastes indisputably, but evidence of the effectiveness of the other remineralization systems is far less convincing.

Elevated Fluoride Products Enhance Remineralization of Advanced Enamel Lesions
TLDR
The aim of this pH-cycling study was to investigate the dose response between 0 and 5000 ppm F of de- and remineralization of advanced (> 150 μm) enamel lesions, and to find out whether toothpastes containing over 1500 ppm F might benefit from the use of toothpaste containing over1500 ppm F.
Remineralization of Caries Lesions Extending into Dentin

TLDR
Dentin remineralization, underneath enamel, can be achieved and could possibly be used in clinical treatment strategies, indicating that, deep into dentin, the pores become supersaturated to apatite formation.
Remineralization of Enamel Subsurface Lesions by Casein Phosphopeptide-stabilized Calcium Phosphate Solutions

TLDR
In this in vitro study, CPP-stabilized calcium phosphate solutions were shown to remineralize subsurface lesions in human third-molar enamel and were significantly correlated with the degree of saturation for hydroxyapatite, octacalcium phosphate, or ACP.
Caries clinical trial of a remineralising toothpaste in radiation patients.
TLDR
The results indicate that the remineralising toothpaste provides a significant benefit in preventing and rem ineralising root caries in high-risk patients.
Amorphous calcium phosphates for tooth mineralization.
TLDR
The potential means of improving the cosmetic appearance of teeth by depositing mineral into surface defects by using the unique properties of amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) compounds, which have the highest rates of formation and dissolution among all the calcium phosphates.

Remineralization of natural and artificial lesions in human dental enamel in vitro. Effect of calcium concentration of the calcifying fluid.
TLDR
Calculation of the supersaturation of the calcifying fluids revealed that the low calcium-calcifying fluid having 1 mM calcium favors crystal growth as opposed to nucleation.
Anticariogenicity of casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate: a review of the literature.
TLDR
Remineralization of white spot lesions has been achieved clinically by applying pastes based on CPP-ACP compounds, and a similar effect to self-applied fluorides has been observed in reducing the appearance of new caries lesions in patients with xerostomia.

TLDR
The author concludes that this individualized result suggests that products with the potential to remineralize tooth structure might be useful adjuncts to traditional tooth-bleaching processes to achieve a uniform appearance when white spots are present.
