ABSTRACT
While fluoride is an effective anti-caries agent, the search for more effective alternative therapies continues. A wide range of non-fluoride anti-caries agents has been postulated. Although many potential agents have been identified in various models, very few have been taken forward to full anti-caries testing in humans. In the future, non-fluoride agents which modify the production of acid in plaque either anti- microbially, biochemically, or directly and emerge to have the most promise for use in topical products and may prove to be effective anti-caries systems.

    All currently used topical fluoride agents deposit soluble fluoride as calcium fluoride on enamel or in lesions. Calcium fluoride serves as a source of fluoride for the formation of fluorapatite. The latter phase is formed when pH drops in plaque, not during topical application. The potential...
