The group has developed a new formulation of chlorhexidine called Pertinax. Chlorhexidine is used to prevent and treat a range of infections, but it is only effective for a very short amount of time, according to a press release from the university.

Strong teeth: Researchers discover internal structure of dentine
Dental Tribune
Being subjected to massive forces, human teeth consist of one of the most durable organic materials. To date, the high crack resistance of dentine has not been fully understood. An interdisciplinary team of scientists has now analyzed the complex structure of dentine, revealing that its mineral particles are precompressed and internal stress works against crack propagation to increase the resistance of the biostructure. This discovery might create new possibilities for restorative materials in dentistry.
