Kazue Yamagishi, a Japanese researcher has created a product that will revolutionize personal care, she has invented a toothpaste so good it will put dentists out of work.
The toothpaste contains components which mimic tooth enamel, and build up where there are cracks in the tooth. It is similar in its form to regular toothpaste however, and so will be easily adopted by people in their own home.
The new formula was created by research with the chemical hydroxylapatit, also known as crystalline calcium phosphate, which makes up the main component of the tooth.
It works by causing 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.
With the creation of this product, dentist visits could soon be a thing of the past.
