His discovery is a kind of toothpaste with incredible properties! Namely, his paste fills all the holes and cracks in the teeth, and restores the tooth enamel at the same time.
The properties of this new paste make a lot of manipulations by your dentist unnecessary. The tooth paste contains similar components with the tooth enamel, but it is in a liquid form. Therefore, its form will make it easy for you to apply it using your toothbrush.
The researcher managed to obtain the formula of the new paste by a series of experiments with hydroxylapatite, or otherwise known as crystalline calcium phosphate, which is the main component of the tooth.
As soon as the paste is applied to the teeth, it causes a dilution of the acid on the surface of the teeth. After three minutes, the paste starts to crystallize and gets fastened to the structure of the natural enamel.
It is a unique paste made from a substance with a similar molecular composure as tooth enamel. The researchers developed the formula, and it will soon be found in every dentist’s office.
This is great for those who hate the sound of the scary drills. Now you will not be terrified about the idea of going to your dentist anymore.
What is the power of this paste?
The revolutionary research was led by Kazue Yamagishi. The team developed and tested the substance that is amazingly similar to tooth enamel.
The results were more than extraordinary. Pseudo-enamel fillers made cavities even more stable than their metal or amalgam counterparts did. Remember how amalgam fillers are bad for your teeth?
The paste provides a more efficient filling, without the unnecessary removing of healthy parts of the tooth which is a common procedure in regular drilling and filling that is supposed to prevent further decay. The paste attaches to the tooth easily, so the dentist does not have to use the drills. This will save you both time and nerves.
But, keep in mind that the faux enamel paste works well only for minor cavities.
Can we use it at home?
Being your own dentist is a nice idea right? But, the new enamel-like paste is extremely acidic, and it needs a professional to apply it.
Researchers note that its high acidity and extreme concentration of hydrogen peroxide can inflame the gums. They also said that other materials with similar aggravating power are already applied in patients.
When will the paste be available to you?
We will have the product in every dentist’s office by next year. Dentists can order it from Dr. Kazue Yamagishi’s website. If your dentist is willing to use the synthetic enamel, you can have your cavities fixed within 20 minutes. And you will be free of pain!
Incredible, isn’t it?
