This research helps in manufacturing natural products that ward off dental problems.
Researchers dipped biofilm ( made of culture of bacteria responsible for dental disease) in differents fluids ,red wine,red wine without alcohol,red wine spiked with grape seed extract, and water and 12 percent ethanol for their study.
“Red wine with or without alcohol and wine with grape seed extract were the most effective at getting rid of the bacteria,” said lead author M. Victoria Moreno-Arribas, an authority on wine chemistry from Spain.
Around 60 to 90 percent of the worldwide population suffer with Cavities, periodontal disease and tooth loss.
Initially the problem begins with bacteria in the mouth accumulate and form biofilms, which are communities of bacteria that are difficult to kill.
