Scientists have found a new way to prevent tooth decay. To do this, Chinese researchers have created a coating that is everything else, and restores teeth.
The Chinese called their invention peptidyl lacquer and explained that its production using natural mechanisms.
Scientists have developed a special material, based on natural antimicrobial peptide H5, which is produced by the salivary glands. It turned out that this substance helps protect the teeth from bacteria.
Next, to the obtained substances the scientists added phosphoserine, which attracted more calcium ions to restore the enamel than the natural H5. The result is a coating that helps to kill the germs before they reach the surface of the teeth.
