Caries is a dynamic disease process involving the cyclic demineralization and remineralization of the tooth structure. A key preventive approach is maintaining an oral environment favorable to remineralization. Fluoride’s ability to promote remineralization is limited by the availability of calcium and phosphate in saliva. The four types of remineralizing therapeutics that attract calcium and phosphate will be discussed as well as the caries process and CAMBRA.
