According to the research, the lab studies show that in just four weeks the teeth restore back to the original form of being healthy. This gel contains MSH or melanocyte-stimulating hormone, the french team had mixed it with a chemical called poly-L-glutamic acid.
Experimentation was done on extracted human teeth and the mixture was then turned into a gel that was rubbed on to the cells , called dental pulp fibroblasts. The gel they say has triggered the growth of new cells and has also helped with the adhesion- the process by which new dental cells"lock" together.
Another experiment was done , when the gel was applied to the teeth of mice with the problem of dental cavities and the scientists have proven that the cavities have disappearance in a month's time.
According to Damien Walmsley of the British Dental Association , he stated that it is surely an interesting new development but it is unlikely to be able to repair the teeth that is completely damaged by decay. He quoted as saying that, “There are a lot of exciting developments in this field, of which this is one. It looks promising, but we will have to wait for the results to come back from clinical trials and its use will be restricted to treating small areas of dental decay."
The scientists have taken further steps in improving dental care for people all around the world and now they have also developed a 'tongue' gel as part of a new approach to tackling bad breath and preventing tooth decay.
The experts say that the new tooth cells would be stronger and a permanent solution too and that the gel is still undergoing testing , but could be available for use within the next three to five years.
