Abstract

Diamonds for shiny teeth: A novel pinpoint ozone-water production unit for dental treatment using boron-doped diamond (BDD) microelectrodes is developed (see picture). The superiority of such BDD microelectrodes over simple and easy-to-handle units, in terms of the larger activities for ozone production and disinfection, is demonstrated.
