When sugars can attack oral health it can be produced from garies to gingivitis. How this "biolocker" works
We tried new pasta, dental flint, mouth bees, but the sugar of food is strong and, at times, they are still making a ticket health of our mouth. Luckily, science requires finding a solution to this problem.
Scientists of University of Coimbra (Portugal) discovered a molecule that prevents bacteria from "catching" tooth. This causes oral diseases such as cavities or gingivitis.
The discovery, which can be used as mouth shutter, faith is called "biolocker", And he explained that the clinical manager of the research, Sérgio Matos, acted as" the bacteria are stunned and the organic molecules will not allow them to join the teeth. "

According to Matos, there are actually classic oral solutions, such as antiseptics, "bactericides that kill them unfavorable, good and bad"As the new method bacteria do not die, as some are" very important "for other functions, such as gastric or gallic.
The product creates a non-sticking coating that prevents bacteria from adhering to the enamel and "guaranteeing longer protection, throughout the day, completing the brushing efficiency and the convenience of restrictions of current oral hygiene products. "
In addition, this allows in advance in preventing oral diseases because the "biolocker" will be cheap and accessible, according to the scientists team, where Daniel Abegão and Filipe Antunes also participate.

The investigation It started two and a half years ago, recalls Matos, and, after the success of the "in vitro" trials with the teeth of human patients, experts are ready to apply to volunteers and start the procedures for obtaining the international patent. The scientists emphasized The importance of research considering caries and gingivitis They are infectious diseases with the highest number of people globally.
Researchers hope that marketing as a product, within a period of about two years, has been created " organic molecules obtained from protein synthesis. "
