Grape Seed Extract Found to Prevent Tooth Decay and Extends Life of Dental Fillings
Are you concerned about the health of your teeth? Well, grape seed extract is just another example of how good nutrition can help keep your teeth strong. If you’ve ever had a tooth repaired by a dentist, you’ll want to read this report – very carefully.
Few fillings last a lifetime, whether they are made of amalgam materials or composite resin. Amalgam, which is a combination of metals, tends to be longer-lasting.
But, its content of mercury and other toxic materials make it a far less desirable choice.
Composite resin is a more appealing dental filling material in many ways. Its blend of plastic and fine glass particles can even be tinted and adjusted to perfectly match your existing tooth color. The only (minor) downside is that composite resin fillings tend to last only half the time of amalgam fillings. (but, still a small price to pay for protecting your health)
