The Nature of Casein Phosphopeptide-amorphous Calcium Phosphate (CPP-ACP) and its Application in Dentistry



Parallel abstracts

Dental caries is an infectious disease that still affects most of the population in modern Taiwan. Many child patients suffer from serious caries disease. Although the use of fluoride plays a central role in caries prevention, the possible toxic effect and the dosage control remained a concern of the public. Casein phosphopeptide-amorphous calcium phosphate (CPP-ACP) is a new technology in the field of caries prevention. It originates from the natural dairy product and has low side effect. CPP-ACP could be the possible solution in caries control. This review article describes the nature of CPP-ACP and its possible efficacy in clinical dental use.
