A new idea to encourage teeth to repair themselves may see the end of the fear-inducing sound of the dentist’s drill, researchers say.
Researchers at King’s College London believe electricity can be used to strengthen a tooth by forcing minerals into the layer of enamel.
They hope it will get rid of the need for drills, injections and fillings.
A company has been set up to bring the technique to the dentist’s chair in the next three years.
They say “Electrically Accelerated and Enhanced Remineralisation” can strengthen the tooth and reduce dental caries – areas of tooth decay.
However, until that time prevention is better then cure, and thats why we reccommend visiting the dentist at least once a year for check up, and ideally twice a year to the dental hygienist.
