It is an all natural non-surgical repair procedure and is entirely pain-free too totally,’ said Professor Jennifer Kirkham, from the University of Leeds Oral Institute, who offers led development of the new technique. The ‘magic’ liquid was designed by researchers in the University of Leeds’ School of Chemistry, led by Dr Amalia Aggeli. It contains a peptide known as P 11-4 that – under certain circumstances – will assemble jointly into fibres. In practice, which means that when applied to the tooth, the fluid seeps in to the micro-pores caused by acid attack and spontaneously forms a gel. Continue reading
