Scientists claim the use of microbes found on seaweed to see more effective results in the fight against tooth decay rather than any of the branded toothpastes.
Scientists from Newcastle University have bought out the above facts. The team of researchers was originally performing an experiment of cleaning ships' hulls with the enzyme isolated from the marine bacterium Bacillus licheniformis.
They noticed in their research that the enzyme has features to serve the human mouth structure too and with similar beliefs, they claim that with the help of the enzyme, people can easily cut through the plaque on their teeth and also use it to efficiently clean the hard-to-reach areas as well.
The Newcastle University team has planned to explain all the findings to the officials during the Society for Applied Microbiology Summer Conference. They have found a wider range of medical applications of the bacteria, including teeth cleaning.
Dr. Nicholas Jakubovics of Newcastle University's School of Dental Sciences believes that the findings will give the medical industry some better products that will offer some more effective treatments with the help of the enzyme.
He said: "Work in a test tube has shown that this enzyme can cut through the plaque or layer of bacteria and we want to harness this power into a paste, mouthwash or denture cleaning solution".
