The Effect of Ozone Gas Using Different Remineralizing Materials on Non-Cavitated Caries-Like Lesions in Permanent Teeth
Ozone application followed by different remineralizing materials had the same effect on calcium uptake, although HealOzone reminalizing solution and patient kit had better effect on reminovalization due to the presence of zinc.
The inhibitory effect of MI paste, fluoride and a combination of both on the progression of artificial caries-like lesions in enamel.
This in-vitro study evaluated the inhibition of demineralization in enamel sections produced by MI paste, fluoride and a combination of both, compared to artificial saliva and NaF 5000 ppm in a caries progression pH-cycling model and found the higher concentration of NaF reduced lesion progression to the greatest extent.

There is evidence for an anticariogenic efficacy of the Enamelon technology for root caries and for the Recaldent technology in significantly slowing the progression of coronal Caries and promoting the regression of lesions in randomized, controlled clinical trials.

The benefits of topical fluorides are firmly established based on a sizeable body of evidence from randomized controlled trials, and better quality research is needed to reach clearer conclusions on the effects of slow release fluoride devices, milk fluoridation, sealants in comparison with fluoride varnishes, and of different modes of delivering fluoride to orthodontic patients.
Performance and Reproducibility of a Laser Fluorescence System for Detection of Occlusal Caries in vitro
For occlusal caries, the new laser fluorescence device has a higher diagnostic validity than the ECM, and in vitro, measurements using the device are highly reproducible, so it could be a valuable tool for the longitudinal monitoring of caries and for assessing the outcome of preventive interventions.
Effects of Zinc and Fluoride on the Remineralisation of Artificial Carious Lesions under Simulated Plaque Fluid Conditions
Under static remineralising conditions simulating plaque fluid, Zn/F treatment gave significantly greaterRemineralisation than did F treatment, possibly because Zn in the Zn /F group maintained greater surface zone porosity compared with F, facilitating greater lesion body reminalisation.
Effect of nano-hydroxyapatite concentration on remineralization of initial enamel lesion in vitro
It was concluded that nano-hydroxyapatite had the potential to remineralize initial enamel lesions under dynamic pH-cycling conditions, and a concentration of 10% nano-Hydroxyap atite may be optimal for rem ineralization of early enamel caries.
The International Caries Detection and Assessment System (ICDAS): an integrated system for measuring dental caries.
This early evaluation of the ICDAS platform has found that the system is practical; has content validity, correlational validity with histological examination of pits and fissures in extracted teeth; and discriminatory validity.
