The aim of the study was to investigate the efficacy of casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) containing tooth mousse on the remineralization of enamel lesions and to compare its efficacy to fluoride containing tooth paste. Thirty premolar teeth were placed in demineralizing solution for 96 hours to produce artificial caries-like lesions. They were sectioned into half and ground sections were prepared. Samples were randomly assigned into three groups: Group A: Nonfluoridated toothpaste (negative control), Group B: Fluoridated toothpaste and Group C: Tooth Mousse containing CPP-ACP. Group C showed a significant decrease in lesion depth after the specified treatment followed by Group B whereas, Group A demonstrated an increase in lesion depth. CPP-ACP containing tooth mousse remineralized initial enamel lesions and showed a higher remineralizing potential than fluoridated toothpaste.
