Abstract

Demineralisation and remineralisation are balanced processes that normally happen in the mouth. Sometimes, weak organization of tooth structures and alterations in diet, oral hygiene or bacterial activity can lead to the predominance of demineralising agents, resulting in initial lesion formation and tooth decay. Early diagnosis and the right approach can stop this progressive destruction and sometimes it is possible to repair and completely heal lesions. This applies to non-cavitated white spot lesions, where the right therapeutic protocols based on fluoride, calcium-phosphate and above all, CPP-ACP-based products, can really halt/reverse the caries process. The right approach is always based on the right interpretation of the pathological situation and on knowledge about how these commonly available bioactive products work.
