Optimization and validation of Aragonite-based toothpaste for dental calculus removal

Most of the available toothpastes are designed to manage tooth decay. Older individuals, however, suffer from gum diseases that caused by accumulation of plaque and tartar on teeth or implants.
The most common way of cleaning the teeth is with a brush and toothpaste. However, even though major companies offer a wide range of products to manage gum disease, they all have limitations when it comes to removal of tartar and cleaning dental implants. Therefore, many patients have to go to the dentist on regular basis to treat these problems, or face the loss of their teeth and implants.
This project is aiming to test and optimize a novel toothpaste (Dr. D-Tart) created for tartar removal. Our lab experiments proved its high capacity in removing tartar and so it is ready to be validated in clinic. TO BE CONT’D
