Is this molecule the future of caries treatment?
from Dr. Bicuspid
Dentists have been drilling and filling for decades, but what if one molecule could end this practice for good? Scientists have created a peptide with antimicrobial and remineralizing properties to help prevent and maybe even reverse tooth decay. The molecule combines salivary peptide histatin 5, which already showed promise as an antimicrobial agent, and the chemical compound phosphoserine, which has demonstrated tooth remineralization properties.
