This chapter presents the results of research on the kinetics of nucleation and crystal growth in solutions simulating the composition of human saliva and plasma. The kinetic characteristics of the processes (order, constant, activation energy, specific surface energy, the size of the critical nucleus) were obtained. The influence of some inorganic (magnesium ions) and organic (protein, alanine and glucose) additives on the kinetics of crystallization is shown.
