In industrialized countries, dental erosion has gained much more attention due to decrease in dental caries. Remineralization of carious lesion can be enhanced by using casein phosphopeptide amorphous calcium phosphate (ACP) which is an effective remineralizing agent. Aim: The study is performed to assess the after effect of Tooth Mousse (CPP-Casein Phosphopeptide-ACP) paste on dental erosion produced by drinks by applying contact profilometer. Materials and Methods: Twenty human teeth (molar and premolar) were collected from patients with either compromised periodontal conditions or extracted due to orthodontic purpose. Samples were categorized into four groups, i.e., Group-I-Coca Cola (10), Group-II-Frooti (10), Group-III-Coca-Cola + Tooth Mousse (10), and Group-IV-Frooti + Tooth Mousse (10). Ph is calibrated by using pH meter with digital electrode. At baseline and after erosive exposure, surface roughness of samples was calculated using profilometer. The values were then statistically interpreted using Bonferroni Post-hoc test. Results: In the present study, after remineralization by Tooth Mousse (Group III and Group IV) change in surface roughness (Ra values) after erosive challenge and remineralization by Tooth Mousse were significant for Group III (Coke + Tooth Mousse) when compared with Group-I (Coke), whereas it was nonsignificant for Group – IV (Frooti + Tooth Mousse) when compared to other Group-II. Conclusion: The present study shows protective effect of CCP-ACP paste on dental erosion that is caused by drinks.
