Mussel Strength


Three out of every four people across the globe suffer from teeth sensitivity. Dopamine, the natural glue produced by mussels for sticking to surfaces, can help cure the problem. The condition occurs when the hard enamel and underlying softer dentine of a tooth wear away, exposing the nerves inside.

It has been observed that cracked dentin and enamel get repaired if damaged teeth are kept bathed in sticky polydopamine and minerals for a week. In contrast, teeth bathed just in minerals reform only enamel. The sticky substance works by keeping minerals in close contact with dentin and enamel long enough for the rebuilding to occur.
