Which Remineralisation Agent / Methods, When?

The use of remineralization agents in the treatment of early enamel caries is aimed at preventing the progression of the white spot lesion and reversing the demineralization phase. The main approach is the use of these agents is to control demineralization/ remineralization activity on the tooth surface. In this presentation, several remineralization agents and caries preventive agents used in clinical applications such as ionic technologies, bioactive agents, sugar alcohols, herbal agents and calcium phosphate based agents will be examined and the clinical results of these products will be compared and the results of the application will be discussed by evidence-based data.
