Japanese Researchers Invent ‘Tooth Patch’ to Prevent Tooth Decay

What if you could protect your teeth from cavities with an invisible layer if extra tooth enamel? In Japan, researchers have gotten a step closer to making that dream a reality. A new invention called the ‘tooth patch’ might someday help to prevent the spread of tooth decay. A biocompatible material, the tooth patch is designed to fit snugly over the top of teeth. It’s made of hydroxyapatite, which is the same material from which tooth enamel is made. In this way, the tooth patch could eventually be used as an all-natural way of protecting teeth from decay. In addition, researchers say the tooth patch can be lightly shaded to give the teeth a whiter and more brilliant appearance.
