The tooth ache that comes with a tooth decay can be debilitating. As a result, most people turn to temporary solutions such as painkillers with the hope of wiping away the pain, only to go through the same ordeal several hours later. Now, imagine swishing a mouthwash, and your cavity and decay are permanently thrown out of your life? Incredible, right? Wenyuan Shi a professor and chairman of oral biology in UCLA school of dentistry just made this possible. He combined microbiology and chemistry to develop a mouthwash that could permanently eliminate bacteria responsible for causing tooth decay without disturbing useful bacteria in the mouth.
Did you know that, most broad spectrum antibiotics and traditional mouthwashes indiscriminately kills both beneficial and harmful bacteria in our mouths in the name of countering tooth decay? Not to forget, these products are temporary solutions whose effect last for only 12 hours and overusing them causes more harm than good of exposing you to further bacterial infections. By the way just in case you didn’t know, there is no effective treatment to bacteria induced tooth decay.
The cavity fighting mouthwash STAMP C16G2 is delivered via a gel tray, and it just passed phase 2 of clinical trials for use in preventing tooth decay and cavities by Los-Angeles based C3 Jian, a company Dr. Wenyuan Shi founded. This is part of drug approval process governed by Food and Drug administration that requires all drugs be tested before being declared fit for human administration.
STAMP C16G2 unique mechanism of destroying only the harmful bacteria makes it fit to treat other bacterial caused ailments beyond dentistry. Scientists are considering this as a huge discovery by Dr.Shi and his colleagues, as it is a problem scientists have been trying to solve for decades. We can only look forward to STAMP C16G2 getting into the market.
