Keep 32 is the latest scientific discovery that could potentially prevent cavities.
Though still pending a patent and human trials, this ingredient shown to kill streptococcus mutans - the bacteria that causes tooth decay, in just 60 seconds, could be available someday.
Wouldn't it be great if we never saw tooth decay like this ever again?
This new product is potentially great news. If all goes well and there are no side effects that are worse than getting a cavity, it could be another important step toward improving dental health.
Keep 32 could be added to toothpaste, mouthwash, candy, and gum.
We already know how to prevent tooth decay.
It would be great to find a new way to kill streptococcus mutans (the bacteria that cause tooth decay).
Tooth decay occurs when this bacteria combines with carbohydrates (sugar) and leads to an acidic attack on your enamel.
But, you can prevent cavities today.
I have seen these simple steps work time after time.
Keeping plaque off your teeth will not only prevent cavities it will also prevent gum disease and keep your teeth looking and feeling great.
Your breath will be fresher too:)
We all have the bacteria Streptococcus mutans in our mouth and yet not everyone gets cavities. This is due to a variety of risk factors and the way your body responds to them.
From what I have seen in 27 years of practicing dental hygiene, sugar is by far the biggest risk factor.
Almost every person who has a mouthful of cavities, consumes way too much sugar. Usually sugar packed sodas are to blame. Their acidic nature combined with a lot of sugar is very bad for your teeth.... not to mention your body.
Some are more prone to cavities than others. For those unlucky ones who in spite of their best efforts still get cavities, there's fluoride.
Fluoride strengthens teeth and makes getting a cavity less likely.
Prevident 5000 is my favorite cavity protection and desensitizing toothpaste. I use and recommend it.
I am hopeful the new product Keep 32 will decrease cavities. In the meantime, three simple lifestyle changes,
will prevent cavities and improve your health:)
