Enamel remineralisation and efficacy of remineralising agents: A Review

Main Article Content

Tanveer Abbas


To review current information and technology for tooth remineralisation. Searches in the "Scopus" and "Web of
Knowledge" databases, which date back to 1970s. English was the only language allowed. The study incorporated
both original research and previously published reviews. Tooth remineralisation agents, products, and treatments
have progressively increased in recent years due to the growing awareness of the significance of good dental
health among patients and general community. Both in vitro and in vivo tooth remineralisation and
demineralization research have been published regularly. Theobromine has been proposed as an effective
remineralising agent and a viable alternative to fluorides in recent years. According to research, fluoride treatments
can prevent dental enamel demineralization and remineralisation. An increasing number of products containing
calcium salts or calcium-based compounds have been added to oral care products to boost the delivery and
retentiveness of fluoride into teeth. Calcium salts or materials, which provide an additional source of calcium,
may aid in accelerating enamel remineralisation or hinder demineralization processes. These effects are possible
because calcium is a mineral. A new area of research inspired by bioactive materials for bone repair and
regeneration, bioglass, in particular calcium silicates, shows promise for improving enamel health and is one type
of bioglass that contains calcium silicate.
