No more fillings as dentists reveal new tooth decay treatment

Post by Guest on Wed Nov 11, 2015 9:31 am

Scientists have developed a new pain-free filling that allows cavities to be repaired without drilling or injections. The tooth-rebuilding technique developed at King's College London does away with fillings and instead encourages teeth to repair themselves. Tooth decay is normally removed by drilling, after which the cavity is filled with a material such as amalgam or composite resin. The new treatment, called Electrically Accelerated and Enhanced Remineralisation (EAER), accelerates the natural movement of calcium and phosphate minerals into the damaged tooth. A two-step process first prepares the damaged area of enamel, then uses a tiny electric current to push minerals into the repair site. It could be available within three years.

Not happening for at least three years.   By then there will be no NHS dentists anyway.

Nope, because the Cons are selling it off to the highest bidder to make money for their mates.
