Research group of the University of Florida believes that the special biological additive will greatly reduce the likelihood of caries development. For the development of caries, for the most part respond to harmful organisms of the oral cavity. If removed, then the teeth will not break down before its time, says Zee News.
In the mouth in the normal environment is neutral or slightly alkaline. When the pH of the saliva becomes acidic, there are conditions for reproduction of carious bacteria. In addition, the acid itself destroys the enamel. That is why the preparations to maintain the pH should help in the prevention of dental caries.
Additive called A12 kills bacteria Streptococcus mutants. This strain converts carbohydrates the oral cavity into lactic acid. As a result, the acidity of normal, significantly reduced the risk of forming cavities.
