n Journal of Minimum Intervention in Dentistry - Minimal intervention in dentistry : glass-ionomers, composite resins and CPP-ACP

There have been many papers published over the years, which attempt to draw a comparison between the physical properties of the members of the composite resin family and the glass-ionomer family. It is suggested that there is little to be gained from these exercises and it is far more valuable to recognize that there are significant differences between the two groups and to then use each group in the area where it is best suited. - A new remineralisation technology has been developed that is based upon phosphopeptides from milk casein and this is capable of penetration to the depths of the porosities. Casein phosphopeptides (CPP) contain multiphosphoseryl sequences and these have the ability to stabilize calcium phosphate in nano-complexes in solution in the form of amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP).
