This comparative investigation was carried out to evaluate the remineralization potential on early artificial carious lesions under Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) of a Mineral enriched mouthrinse and a fluoridated dentifrice using an in-vivo intra-oral removable appliance model. This findings revealed that the remineralization was found to have occurred in almost all the samples (in children) using non-fluoridated, fluoridated dentifrices as well as those using mineral enriched mouthrinse. However the qualitative analysis of the remineralization revealed that in case of non-fluoridated dentifrice group, the prismatic holes showed deposition of granular, variable sized particles with uneven distribution, while in fluoridated dentifrice group, deposits were found to have partially but more densely filled up the prism cores. In case of mineral enriched mouthrinse group these deposits were found to be in the form of amorphous globular precipitate.
