Improved enamel remineralisation using a novel biomimetic system
Grant number: 1047643 | Funding period: 2013 - 2015
Tooth decay remains a major public health problem. The project will involve the testing of the system to remineralize (repair) early stages of decay. The project also involves the detailed characterization of the molecular interactions of the components of a system. It is anticipated that this project will result in the development of a system with substantially superior properties for the non-invasive treatment (repair) of early tooth decay.
