How does it work?
When applied to tooth surfaces it binds to plaque and bacteria and the surrounding soft tissues making calcium and phosphates available.  Saliva will enhance the effectiveness of CPP-ACP.  The flavour of the mousse also stimulates saliva flow.  The longer it is maintained in the mouth the more effective the result.
