UK Scientists Create Toothpaste That Fixes Holes In Teeth

April 13, 2016: 12:00 AM EST
In the UK, a team of scientists has developed a toothpaste that repairs the tiny holes in teeth and ultimately can be used as fillings. Led by University of London’s Dental Physical Sciences chairman Robert Hill, the team incorporated BioMinF, which binds to the teeth, into the product, enabling it to fill any decay and slowly release a combination of calcium, phosphate, and fluoride. Also, the ingredient, known as a bioactive glass, will be used to make varnishes for protecting children’s teeth.
