Stop Tooth Decay and Infectious Disease All At Once

Rong Wang of Wamax, Inc. in the U.S. will develop a tooth filler which can be applied by hand into cavities to provide long-lasting anti-viral and anti-bacterial functions. If successful, the low-cost dental filler could be applied by non-medical personnel and provide long-lasting protection from infectious diseases that enter the body through the mouth.
