Tooth decay – drilling down to the nanoscale



With one in two Australian children reported to have tooth decay in their permanent teeth by age 12, researchers from the University of Sydney believe they have identified some nanoscale elements that govern the behaviour of our teeth.

Watch this video to see how our material and structures research engineers worked with dentists and bioengineers to successfully map the exact composition and structure of our teeth’s enamel at the atomic scale using nanoscience.
