ABSTRACT:Several remineralizing agents helps in remineralization of the carious lesion by replenishing lost minerals like calcium, phosphate ions into the tooth structure. Several in vitro and in vivo studies have proven that these agents have proven to be useful in the treatment of white spot lesions, early childhood caries, dental erosion, root caries, and dentin hypersensitivity. They are delivered in the form of oral hygiene products such as chewing gum, tooth cream, and even incorporated in dental restorative materials also. The present article highlights different remineralizing agents used in dentistry with their mechanism of action.
