Restorative and remineralizing agents continue to be developed to improve patient care and health outcomes. Biogenic peptide-based products are an emerging technology that can serve as a valuable alternative in caries prevention and management (including remineralization), as well as dentinal hypersensitivity treatment. Additionally, their use in dental materials could save time and expense by eliminating the need for traditional treatments—including composite-based restorations—once lesions extend beyond the enamel.
