It’s like soap for your mouth: Why cyclodextrins are important for the future of oral care

During viral epidemics, dental studios face significant challenges. Amidst requirements for meticulous hygiene and virus spread prevention, cyclodextrins in oral care products could help dentists do their jobs while keeping everyone healthy and safe. While cyclodextrins are not primarily meant as prevention or cure for viral infections, in the same way as soap, they destroy membranes of viruses and make them weaker.

In times of viral epidemics, dentists rank among the most vulnerable professions when it comes to risk of viral infection. As a result, dental studios need to take exceptional measures to prevent virus transmission and ensure the health and safety of both patients and staff. We believe that oral care products should contribute to these efforts and make dental practices a healthier place altogether.

Using cyclodextrins as a broad-spectrum antiviral is one of the ways oral care products can help with prevention and treatment of viruses in dental studios. Not at all common today, we believe that more and more oral care products are going to include cyclodextrins in future, in order to take advantage of their virus-fighting properties, among others.

“Cyclodextrins are proving to be extremely valuable in prevention against viral attacks on the mucous membranes in the mouth, throat and nose.”

Prof. Denis Bourgeois, University of Lyon

What are cyclodextrins?

Cyclodextrins are substances commonly used in drug delivery as solubilizers, i.e. a kind of medium that helps deliver drugs to where they are needed. This includes, for example, antiviral drugs that need to reach the mucous membranes where viruses like to settle in and spread.

More importantly though, modified cyclodextrins act as effective broad-spectrum antivirals. According to a recent study published in Science Advances, a cyclodextrin they developed “exhibits a broad-spectrum virucidal, irreversible mechanism of action, presents a high barrier to viral resistance, and is biocompatible.”

It’s like soap for your mouth: Mouthwash with cyclodextrins are important for the future of oral care

Applying cyclodextrins to the mucous membranes of the mouth can therefore help prevent infection and the spread of viruses in the mouth, nose and throat.


Coronavirus (COVID-19)


nhs.uk NHS advice about coronavirus (COVID-19), including what to do if you think you have it and how to reduce your chances of getting it.

[02/14/20]   •Coronavirus (COVID-19): latest information and advice•

Based on the World Health Organization’s declaration that this is a public health emergency of international concern, the UK Chief Medical Officers have raised the risk to the public from low to moderate. This permits the government to plan for all eventualities. The risk to individuals remains low.

Based on the scientific advice of SAGE the UK Chief Medical Officers are advising anyone who has travelled to the UK from mainland China, Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia or Macau in the last 14 days and is experiencing cough or fever or shortness of breath, to stay indoors and call NHS 111, even if symptoms are mild.

•If you have recently visited any of the above countries and have an upcoming appointment please contact reception for advice •

• #ALittleTripToTheDentist •

Did you know children are consuming up to three times the recommended sugar intake, with many 10 year olds having already reached the maximum suggested amount for an 18 year old.

Sugar is not only dangerous for babies and children’s developing teeth, but can have wider health implications including type 2 diabetes.

Taking children, even before teeth come through, can help parents get useful advice on how to limit sugar and what to look out for in ready-made foods or drinks.

•The practice will be closed tomorrow due to a practice training day•
We will be open as usual on Wednesday. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

• Post-Op Summary •

Craig takes a LOT of photos and for many this is quite new to you. We feel it's the best way to explain everything we are doing.

It's always nice to show you the finished result even if you can't see it everyday.

[01/30/19]   Due to the heavy snowfall over night, Jo will be unable to make it in today, therefore all hygiene appointments will be re-arranged. We will contact everyone who will be effected by this.
Thankyou for your understanding.

• In with the new •
Feeling very proud and grateful to our family who have helped us to make the possible. In 5 days, with our own hands we have completed quite the transformation.
Finishing touches still needed but the hall & waiting room are complete.
We hope you enjoy @ Buxton Dental Practice

•Many hands make light(er) work•
Merry Christmas to all our lovely patients. An extra Christmas present to you all...the new waiting area! We have been making the most of the Christmas break and in a couple more days will have the place spick and span ready for you all to relax before your appointments.

• A little Christmas sparkle •
We want to make a feature of the lovely chimney breast in the waiting room ... today the sample of quartz split face arrived and we are SOLD. Absolutely love it, it's fresh, bright and interesting ... can't wait to add another texture and feature to the room! Hope you guys like it too, we chose it to bring nature inside with a touch of luxe.

• Baby it's cold outside •
Behind the scenes continued..
We always think of A.C. as being for those few hot summer days but it is perfect for temperature regulation all year round! Keeps it warm in winter and cool in summer.

• And on the 7th day ... •
... We got the flooring finished 🎉
So excited for this to all come together!
Please bear with us over the coming weeks whilst we complete the room.
If this is anything to go by it's going to be even better than we imagined!

• The A-Team •
When your team already works so well that you don't need to do a team building activity for your Christmas party!
We are so lucky to have such a positive, refreshing and hard working team.
Congratulations to Natalie, Chelsea and Craig on your podium finishes :)

• Out with the old •
There's no way of making this look pretty but we thought you would like to see the renovations underway in the hallway and waiting room.
There's is a lot that happens beind the scenes (and the ceilings and walls) to get the practice looking how it will.
A few of you may have been in when the girls have been painting and we just want to thank them SO much for going above and beyond their roles to make a better environment for everyone!! We are so lucky to have such a brilliant team. Thanks girls @ Buxton Dental Practice

• I spy with my little eye something beginning with AB •
Bought a sofa from @arighibianchi today for your waiting room.
Only the best will do, we are so excited for the room to come together. Can't wait for you all to see

• Decisions, decisions •
We have decided to go for a navy accent colour so now need to pick a flooring to set it all off.
Do you guys prefer ... light or dark? Straight boards or herringbone?

•50 shades of neutral•
And so the fun begins...sample viewing today 😁 so many options, so many combinations.
We are working to make your practice homely, calm and welcoming, a place you really want to be.
The team work really hard to provide those things but without the right environment it can be difficult.
We welcome any ideas or opinions before the renos begin

•A true family business•
Dr Walsh in his element shopping for a new dental chair whilst his mother in law keeps his children happy with cuddles.
We can't wait for you guys to see what we have in store for the place ... are we asking for trouble going with a white dental chair and waiting room or will you keep it clean for us?

•Late night, date night•
Because running a dental practice is not a 9-5 job. This photo was taken at 23.30 on Saturday night when our friends were out for the night....we love Buxton Dental and everyone who works so hard to make it what it is.
After a year of owning the practice we feel it is the right time to say thankyou to our staff and loyal patients... the waiting room transformation will begin in the new year.
Above is a scale drawing of the waiting room and last night was design and furniture shopping. (THE FUN BIT)

•Shining bright•
We love a patient selfie @im_fabxx showing off her gorgeous pearly whites after taking advantage of our summer whitening deal. Than you for giving us permission to share your amazing results!
Keep them coming guys ... tag us if you’re happy for us to share

•What are the odds•
1:25 chance of winning a Philips Sonic toothbrush worth £60
The next 25 people to leave Buxton Dental a google review will be entered into a prize draw to win a top of the range brush...they’re pretty good odds!

•Work hard, Walk hard•
So nice to receive a picture of Martin and Gill on their summer holiday. As if they don’t work hard enough when they are at home, they spend their down time climbing in France’s answer to the Peak District.
That is an amazing amount of energy!! As much as we are missing Dr Brown, his down time is what allows him to be such a brilliant dentist! He always comes home revitalised and refreshed!

•Up your brush game•
As hard as we work and as well as Jo can freshen up your smile, it is all for nothing if you don’t take care of your teeth at home.
This toothbrush is a bit of a gimmick in that you’re paying some of the money for its looks ... however, there is endless evidence proving that electric tooth brushes are the gold standard and far better than manual. An electric brush is a small investment to maintain your teeth, and cheaper that even one filling! Available from the practice/ online shop and many online retailers ... we don’t care where you buy just that you do!

•Meet this weeks new recruit•
Nat has been with us for a month now and has fitted in a treat-we can’t remember how it was before she arrived!
Nat recently relocated from Bristol (if you’re trying to place her accent) She was a chef and wanted a career change, after Nat being with us for a week of work experience we couldn’t let her go. She will start her nurse training with Alice in a couple of months.
With the cheffing background Nat is quite the foodie so in her spare time likes to visit nice restaurants and bars in the UK and abroad. When she’s not living the high life Nat likes to spend time with her nieces, nephews and friends

•Only the best will do•⠀
Out with the old and in with the new.⠀
Hard as he may work Dr Walsh is a long way off sitting in a Bentley car seat...this is the next best thing.⠀
The upholstery pattern used on this chair is the same as in a Bentley! We believe it’s the only one in existence. ⠀
Those of you who have been with us for a while will have experienced the trusty chair in the upstairs surgery. ⠀
It is good quality and reliable but needed a little TLC to say the least.⠀
Little by little we are getting there with the transformation, don’t know about you but we feel that when youre at the dentist the chair is the most important bit. #firstthingsfirst
