Minimally Invasive Techniques for Remineralization
Although the reduction of fermentable carbohydrate intake and the incorporation of fluoride in toothpaste and community water systems have been the mainstay of dental caries prevention, recent data confirm that dental caries remains a serious worldwide public health problem. The American Dental Association has long encouraged the implementation of minimally invasive approaches to treat incipient and white spot lesions. To support clinicians in their practice, clinical practice guidelines for the treatment of these lesions have been developed and are easily accessible. These guidelines include fluoride and nonfluoride caries preventive agents, available in different formulations, for professional and at-home use.
