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.
