Yale researchers have recently discovered a new molecule that is able to destroy the common bacteria—Streptococcus Mutans—which is often responsible for the onset of tooth decay. They call it ‘Keep 32′ because of the fact there are 32 teeth in the adult oral cavity, and are planning to have it on the market within the next year and a half. So far, tests show it can kill the harmful bacteria in as little as 60 seconds, and will prevent it from coming back for another several hours after it’s applied. For more information, check out the original press release: Researchers Discover Molecule that Kills Mouth Bacteria.
