And now candy that is good for your teeth!

Researchers at the Stony Brook University's School of Dental Medicine have developed a new technology that can be incorporated into candy and confections and will not promote cavity formation in teeth. //

The researchers found that this new technology, which has been named CaviStat(R), is more effective than fluoride in preventing the formation of cavities and tooth decay. This conclusion was arrived at after testing it out in a two-year toothpaste study involving 726 patients. The findings of the study are detailed in the quarterly Journal of Clinical Dentistry (Volume 16, Number 3). "CaviStat can be considered to be a super-saliva complex that picks up where fluoride has left off," said Dr. Israel Kleinberg, the lead researcher and Founding Chair of the Department of Oral Biology and Pathology. "By mimicking the profound benefits of saliva we are able to attack all stages of the tooth decay process at the same time."

CaviStat was created to mimic the effects of the anti-acid, buffering and re-mineralizing features normally found in the saliva. The technology was created and patented by researchers in the Department of Oral Biology and Pathology at Stony Brook. The technology will be used to make the first candy that fights tooth decay as well as fluoride does, Mitchell Goldberg, President of Ortek, said the company will launch its first CaviStat(R) candy, BasicMints(TM), "This innovative technology can be included in a range of confections and even foods, such as, chewing gum, gelatin chews, powdered candy and even chewable vitamins," he observed.
