Several researchers are suggesting with their new discovery that brushing teeth with a seaweed enzyme can give better results than any other good and effective toothpaste.
The above recommendations are coming from Newcastle University scientists, who are claiming in their statements of findings an enzyme extracted from a bacteria found in seaweed with equal benefits to a healthy mouth structure as are claimed by good toothpastes serving in the markets today.
The discovery has fortunately paved its way in this direction as researchers were originally experimenting the enzyme isolated from marine bacterium Bacillus licheniformis for its use in cleaning purposes of ship hulls.
Above results have been reported in the Daily Mail, in which it is clearly mentioning that the enzyme has strong features to cut through any plaque on teeth and also it easily reaches the hard-to-reach areas in the mouth for cleaning purposes.
Mr. Nicholas Jakubovics of the university's School of Dental Sciences said the discovery can give better and more effective products for dental treatment in the near future. "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", Jakubovics said.
