Dental Cavities to be a Thing of the Past?

This isn’t the usual subject that we write about here on Legit Reviews. However, it’s of such importance to our readers that we’re bringing this to you as a public service.

Oral health and good teeth are very important to our overall wellbeing, but unfortunately, dental cavities are a fact of life for most of us and especially so for people who consume significant amounts of sugar, in any form – and that’s most of us, if we’re honest. Enter a new molecule that scientists have discovered which actually makes teeth cavity proof and may change dental care forever. They have named it the rather unscientific-sounding, but marketing-friendly Keep 32, because we have 32 teeth. So, what’s this molecule’s big party trick? It can kill the bacteria that produce cavities in 60 seconds flat!


“José Córdoba—a researcher at Yale University—and Erich Astudillo—from the Universidad de Santiago, Chile—claim that this molecule can be added to any dental care product, from toothpaste to mouthwash. In fact, they say it can be added to anything, even candies and chewing gum”, reports Gizmodo.

All the user has to do is keep the product in the mouth for one minute and it will eliminate the dreadful Streptococcus Mutans bacteria which causes cavities, making teeth cavity proof for several hours. A truly amazing result and one that dentists all over may be cursing as they see their volume of business significantly reduces. This wonder molecule should be finding its way into products in around 14-18 months.

They started the research in 2005 and now they are aiming to have this product in the market in 14 to 18 months. Once they go through human safety trials in the United States, they want to license the patent to dental care manufacturers like Colgate or Procter & Gamble, as well as companies like Hershey’s or Cadbury.
