"Researchers say that as long as the product stays in your mouth for 60 seconds, it will kill all the Streptococcus Mutans, bacteria that transforms the sugar in your mouth into lactic acid which attacks your tooth enamel, making your teeth cavity proof for a number of hours." -Christine Hsu
(Chile)—Keep your eyes open for a new toothpaste that may be available within a year that would enable you to never visit a dentist again.
Though it seems too good to be true, various reports say a chemical called "Keep 32" was designed by dentists in Chile to wipe out all the bacteria that cause cavities in 60 seconds. (Photo: Microsoft)
"Keep 32" has already been tested for seven years and is now undergoing human trials.
Researchers José Córdoba from Yale University and Erich Astudillo from the University of Chile say that the molecule can be added to any dental care product, like toothpaste and mouthwash and even to products like candies and chewing gum.
