Abstract

Objective: To examine the effects of application of casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) paste and microabrasion treatment on the regression of white spot lesions (WSLs). Materials and Methods: Artificially-induced WSLs in bovine enamel were randomly assigned to one of four treatment groups: CPP-ACP paste only, microabrasion only, microabrasion and CPPACP, and a control. Samples were treated with each regimen twice daily for 2 weeks and stored in remineralizing solution between the treatments. Quantitative light-induced fluorescence was used to measure changes in fluorescence, which indicate changes in mineral content of WSLs immediately before (T1) and 2 weeks after treatment (T2). A two-within-subject factor analysis of variance was used to analyze the significance of any changes in mineral content of the lesions from T1 to T2. Results: There was a statistically significant (P <.05) gain in fluorescence associated with the microabrasion only, as well as the microabrasion and CPP-ACP treatments. The changes in fluorescence for the CPP-ACP treatment alone were not statistically significant (P =.40). Conclusions: CPP-ACP paste alone does not significantly improve the fluorescence value (ie, the mineral content) of WSLs. Within the limitations of this in vitro study, microabrasion treatment with or without CPP-ACP improved the fluorescence and thus reduced WSLs.
