Electrically Assisted Enhanced Remineralization – at last, an end to painful dentist visits

Yay, the fear of taking a trip to the dentist could be a thing of the past. Most people are terrified of the dentist’s chair, and quite rightly. All those needles and drills are enough to send even Matt Damon running. But that could all be a thing of the past if Electrically Assisted Enhanced Remineralization, a new dental procedure from Reminova, an offshoot of King’s College in London, takes off. It’s a new non-invasive treatment that helps your tooth regain its defenses against decay.

This isn’t the process of growing new teeth. What it does is encourage the teeth to absorb healthy calcium and minerals to fight back against cavities. Over time, our teeth are stripped of minerals and healthy enamel which over time leads to cavities, a process called demineralization. This new process uses bursts of ultra low power electricity to reverse that. Once the tooth is clean, a tiny current of electricity is used to create a field that pushes the good ions into the cavity. The patient feels nothing.

It’s not out on the market just yet, as the company hasn’t been cleared to conduct human trials, but if this makes it out of the lab it could completley change how we view going to the dentist. The initial equipment should cost about $10,000 with each treatment packet costing less than $10. (main photo credit: shutterstock.com)
