Reversing Tooth Decay by using electrical currents. No Drilling and No Fillings.

Author: Rajamanickam Antonimuthu

Today, Tooth Decay remains one of the most common diseases throughout the world. Current treatment involves drilling the tooth to remove decay and filling with restorative materials such as amalgam, resin, porcelain or gold. Trips to the dentist could soon be much less painful as scientists are finding a way to repair tooth decay without the need for drilling and fillings. Reminova Ltd, a new spin-out company from King's College London, is developing a new technique to achieve it.

This technique effectively reverses tooth decay by using electrical currents to boost the natural repair process of the tooth. It encourages teeth to repair themselves. The two-step method developed by Reminova first prepares the damaged part of the enamel outer layer of the tooth, then uses a tiny electric current to 'push' minerals into the tooth to repair the damaged site. The defect is remineralised in a painless process that requires no drills, no injections and no filling materials.

Electric currents are already used by dentists to check the pulp or nerve of a tooth; And, this new device uses lesser amount of electric current which cannot be felt by the patient. The technique is named as Electrically Accelerated and Enhanced Remineralisation (EAER). And, It will be available within three years. This method will be cost effective and can also be used to whiten teeth. Around 2.3 billion people are believed to suffer from tooth decay every year, making it one of the most common preventable diseases in the world. The World Health Organization estimates that 60-90 percent of schoolchildren and nearly 100 percent of adults worldwide have dental cavities.
