If a story by London website "Daily Mail Online" is correct, your dentist may be looking for a job soon.

The chemical was designed by dentists in Chile, and wipes out all the bacteria that cause cavities in just 60 seconds in tests.

The chemical could be added to any current dental care product, turning toothpaste, mouthwash and chewing gum into 'super cleansers' that could get rid of the underlying cause of tooth decay.

I know I may be in the minority here, but I actually like going to the dentist. My dentist always had the best candy. It's almost like they were trying to create work for themselves. Imagine a word balloon appearing over a dentist' head..."Hmm...if I give him 5 sugar straws, he'll be back in with teeth problems in no time!"

Reminds me of a great comedy bit my parents used to love on the Carol Burnett Show. If you don't know who Carol Burnett is, please play along. She also has red hair and deserves your pity.

We have some great dentists in this area. And, I'm not saying that just because they have sharp objects and could carve me up like a Thanksgiving turkey when I'm under anesthetic. But, would you stop going to the dentist if there was something that could make your teeth invincible? I don't think I could do that. Otherwise, I'll have to start paying for my candy like everyone else.
