After undergoing many periods of demineralization and remineralization the matured tooth surface is less soluble and more resistant to caries challenges. When incorporated into mineral crystal structure as tooth bound fluoride, it is in a highly stable form and is not released into the solution except under extremely acidic conditions. Remineralization is enhanced by providing low levels of calcium and phosphate in conjugation with minimal amounts of fluoride. Fluoride continues to be considered the most important therapy available today to promote lesion remineralization.
