Dentin remineralization is vital for maintaining oral health and preventing tooth decay. Natural dentin remineralizing agents have gained significant attention as a promising alternative to synthetic remineralizing agents due to their biocompatibility, low cost, and minimal adverse effects. This book chapter provides a comprehensive overview of various natural dentin remineralizing agents and their potential applications in dental therapy. The mechanisms underlying the remineralization process, the properties and sources of natural dentin remineralizing agents, and the techniques used for their extraction and formulation are discussed. Additionally, the in vitro and in vivo studies investigating the effectiveness of natural dentin remineralizing agents in restoring tooth mineralization and preventing dental caries are highlighted. Finally, the future prospects and challenges are discussed. This book chapter provides a valuable resource for dental professionals, researchers, and students interested in natural dentin remineralization and its potential applications in dentistry.
