Abstract DATA SOURCES: PubMed, Medline, Web of Science and the Cochrane Library databases were searched. STUDY SELECTION: Selection was conducted independently by two reviewers, only randomised controlled trials were included. Study quality was assessed using the Cochrane risk of bias approach. DATA EXTRACTION AND SYNTHESIS: Data abstraction was carried out independently by two reviewers and qualitative summary presented, because of the heterogeneity of the interventions and outcome measures. RESULTS: Seven studies were included, all except one (of medium risk) were considered to be at high risk of bias. Three studies evaluated fluoride preparations (50-ppm sodium fluoride mouth rinse, 5\% sodium fluoride varnish and 0.5\% sodium fluoride chewing sticks). Four compared remineralising agents containing casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate or casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium fluoride phosphate. CONCLUSIONS: Based on the literature, there is a lack of reliable evidence to support the effectiveness of remineralising agents for the treatment of post orthodontic white spot lesions.
