Special Mouthwash Could Swish Away Tooth Decay

Inside Science

Microbiologists have developed an antimicrobial rinse that could prevent cavities.

According to the UCLA news release on this work:

"Based on the success of this limited clinical trial, C3-Jian Inc. has filed a New Investigational Drug application with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which is expected to begin more extensive clinical trials in March 2012. If the FDA ultimately approves Sm STAMP C16G2 for general use, it will be the first such anti-dental caries drug since fluoride was licensed nearly 60 years ago."
