In this CrystEngComm Hot Article, Stephen Mann and co-workers demonstrate the use of electrospun mats of amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP)/poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) nano- and microfibres to promote in vitro remineralization of dental enamel and dentine tubule occlusion.
The method is performed under clinically relevant conditions and holds the potential for a new approach to the regeneration of enamel and the alleviation of dentine hypersensitivity.
