When sugars attack the oral health can be generated smokers gingivitis. How does this "biolocker" work
We tried new pasta, dental floss, mouthwash, but Sugars Of food are strong, and sometimes, they manage to make a dent though Health of our mouth. Fortunately, science insists on finding a solution to this problem.
Scientists of University of Coimbra (Portugal) discovered a molecule that prevents bacteria from "grabbing" the teeth. This causes oral diseases such as cavities or gingivitis.
The discovery, which can be applied as mouth wash, it's called "Bioloker"Explained the clinical director of the study, Sergio Mato, to act in such a way that" the bacteria are stunned and the organic molecule will not allow them to attach teeth. "

Bacteria "good" bacteria "bad"
According to Matus, classical oral solutions, such as antiseptics, are, in fact,Bacteria kill them indiscriminately, both good and bad"With bacteria the new method does not die, as some" very important "for other functions, such as stomach or heart.
The product creates a non-stick coating that prevents bacteria from infecting the enamel, "promises more protection, Throughout the day, completion of brushing efficiency And replace the limitations of current oral hygiene products. "
In addition, it allows advance prevention of oral diseases that "biolocker" will be cheap and accessible, according to the team of scientists, where Daniel Abegão and Filipe Antunes also participate.

The investigation Started two and a half years ago, Recalled Matus, and after the success of in vitro experiments with the teeth of human patients, experts are willing to apply it to volunteers to initiate the procedures to achieve the international patent. The scientists stressed The importance of research given that tooth decay and gingivitis They are infectious diseases with the highest incidence in the world.
The researchers hope that within a period of about two years it can be marketed as a product, created "from Organic molecules Obtained from protein synthesis. "
