    Objectives: Casein Phosphopeptide and Amorphous Calcium Phosphate complex (CPP-ACP) is the main remineralizing additive in GC Tooth Mousse®. The objective of this study was to analyze the fluoride mineral phase formed on enamel after application of GC Tooth Mousse (GC), BIOMINF® (BF) and fluoride in an acidic environment. Methods: Enamel blocks (n=1), measuring ~5×5mm with a maximum thickness of ~1mm, were cutfrom caries-freepermanenthumanmolars. Eachenamelblockwasimmersedin50mlofacidicsolution (0.1M acetic acid pH 4.0) at 37°C for 24hrs. Subsequently, the samples were subjected to remineralization by immersing them in a fresh acidic solution (0.1MaceticacidpH4.0) containing either 1g of BF, 1g GC, 1g GC +18ppm F – or 18ppm F. These samples were then stored for a further 96 hrs at 37°C. All five enamel blocks were.. View More»
