Mineralisation Of The Mouth

Mineralisation Of The Mouth

The mouth is consistently in a state of either demineralization or remineralization. This happens mostly in the Dentin. They are based on the pH level of the mouth and the saliva that is being produced.

Remineralization is good. Did you know that cavities can be repaired and filled naturally? During remineralization, structures are built that put minerals back in and fill up cavities.
