OBJECTIVE In addition to its role as a remineralizing agent in preventing dental caries, recent evidence has shown that casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) can protect teeth against erosion. The aim of this study was to determine whether CPP-ACP could reduce enamel wear rates under severe erosive conditions simulating heavy attrition and gastric regurgitation. DESIGN Enamel specimens were subjected to 10,000 wear cycles at a load of 100 N and pH 1.2 in a tooth wear… CONTINUE READING
