Washington D.C. (USA), June 13, 2017: A recent study has suggested that consumption of grapes can lead to having healthier teeth. A natural compound that is found in grapes, can strengthen the one’s teeth by boosting the strength of fillings and the gums, resulting in protecting the teeth from decaying early, reported ANI.

The discovery can stop people from losing their teeth early- the scientists of the Illinois University at Chicago college of Dentistry, have said. The extract from the grape seed, which is a byproduct of the wine industry is sold at health food stores, has long been considered beneficial in improving cardiac health and better circulation.

According to ANI’s reports, the substance is being considered to reduce tooth extractions as it can increase the longevity of the tooth colored fillings or the composite resin fillings that are known to last no more than five to seven years.

The results of the study suggests that the extract has been found to tighten Dentin- the tissue which forms the bulk of one’s tooth, lying beneath the tough external enamel. Hence, when the teeth get damaged, the remaining part can be strengthened to bond with the materials utilized in fillings.

According to the reports of ANI, this discovery appears as a good news for patients opting for resin-fillings due to the fact that those are more aesthetically pleasing; even though those are not as strong as the amalgam-fillings, lasting for 10 to 15 years or even more than that.

Dr. Ana Bedran Russo, a researcher, stated that decay forms around the failed filling and then the seal gets damaged then. The team is working on reinforcing the interface so that the resin bonds better to the Dentin; ANI reported.

Tooth decay is caused due to acid production from plaque that forms in one’s teeth.

The acid begins to damage the surface of the teeth forming holes referred as cavities, when plaque is allowed to form in the teeth. The cavity then starts eating away the second surface of tooth material, lying beneath the enamel- the Dentin.

According to ANI reports, researchers stated that better adhesion is provided by interlocking the collagen rich Dentin and the resin, without having to rely on moisture.

The study appeared on the Dental Research journal.
