Enamel remineralization, or the regrowing of tooth enamel, remains the most formidable challenge in the field of bionics.
The new SeaStem serum fraction is rich in minerals, sugars and phlorotannin which are said to provide skin nutrition, remineralization and antioxidant properties.
(3) The main etiologic factor for its onset is the presence of a cariogenic biofilm and the intake of fermentable carbohydrates, promoting a dynamic process of demineralization and remineralization. (4) Caries progresses when there is an imbalance of factors favoring demineralization, by the loss of calcium (Ca) and phosphate (P) ions from the apatite crystals of the tooth surface.

Your teeth get extra protection when you chew sugar-free gum that's sweetened with xylitol, a sugar substitute that prevents decay by stopping acid production, decreasing bacteria and enhancing the remineralization of teeth, as detailed on WebMD.
Fluoride has been studied for decades and has shown to be effective in preventing tooth decay by inhibiting demineralization, enhancing remineralization, and reducing the metabolic activity of bacteria [7, 8].

This study demonstrated that both CESP and Sensodyne Pronamel can protect the tooth surface by preventing its erosive enamel loss and enhancing remineralization.
The initiation of anti-thyroid drugs may lead to excessive bone remineralization resulting in hungry bone syndrome (HBS), characterized by hypocalcemia, hypophosphatemia, and hypomagnesemia (3).
