The dissolvable glass particles after dissolving in the teeth release key ingredients for the protection of teeth, calcium and fluoride that are instrumental in protecting teeth against decay and sensitivity to temperature.

Another development that has been made is that of anesthetic that only affects the jaw and the mouth area for a period of 30 minutes to 90 minutes. The anesthetic is inhaled and is most effective in the upper jaw area, as it is the most porous
