Caries Process and Prevention Strategies: Demineralisation/Remineralisation

Introduction

Introduction
This is part of a series entitled Caries Process and Prevention Strategies. In this course, the dynamic process of demineralisation and remineralisation is discussed, paying particular attention to tooth hard tissue structure, the role of acid production by cariogenic bacteria, and the critical pH at which tooth enamel begins to dissolve. The role of acid-reducing bacteria, saliva, and fluoride in tooth hard tissue remineralisation will also be explained.
