Novel Approaches in hard tissue remineralization: An Overview

ABSTRACT:Preservation of tooth structure by prevention of mineral loss occurring on its surface remains the primary goal of modern dentistry. This can be achieved by strengthening the natural repair mechanism of remineralisation. The remineralization process is a natural repair mechanism to restore the minerals again, in ionic forms, to the hydroxyapatite (HAP) crystal lattice. In this process, calcium and phosphate mineral ions are redeposited within the tooth surface from plaque and saliva. Thereby making the appetite crystals more resistant to acid dissolution. Thus, the emphasis currently is being laid upon new technologies for enamel remineralization. The aim of this paper is to review the contemporary remineralizing systems along with the newly introduced agents available for remineralization therapy.
