Mineral balance in the oral cavity and what helps us maintain it

07/12/2020

Try GC Tooth Mousse! It is a bioactive dental cream which helps to sustain mineral balance in your mouth. What are the advantages of using this dental  cream? It contains calcium and phosphate, the major minerals teeth are made from. They are carried in a special milk-derived protein called RECALDENT (CPP-ACP) which helps remineralization in your mouth. Also it closes dental tubules and helps to lower teeth sensitivity. It does not contain sugars which is another advantage. It suits all age categories - from toddlers (it is recommended from 2 years old mostly) to adults. You can find the cream in many flavours - so you have a lot of options (strawberry, melon, mint, vanilla or tutti-frutti).

What causes tooth demineralization?

Demineralisation is a process when bacteria in your mouth create acids from foods and drinks that can affect your dental enamel. It is visible as mainly white spots on your enamel - which is early mineral loss that can lead into a decay. If we want to lower the risk of demineralisation and caries formation, we should choose some products for remineralisation. Apart from that the most important is dental hygiene (taught by your dentist or dental hygienist). 

One of the options for remineralisation is a Recaldent molecule which contains calcium and phosphate that helps to protect your enamel from acids in your mouth. Recaldent is made from milk casein (molecule CPP- ACP). That is why this product can not be used when you have a suspected or proven allergy to milk proteins, benzoate preservatives or soybean derivative. In case of an allergic reaction you should stop using this product.

Who can use this cream? 

This cream lowers the risk of caries formation, also decreases teeth sensitivity after bleaching or sensitivity when you have gum recessions. It is also recommended for people with braces, erosions or people with xerostomia etc. And how to apply this dental cream? It can be used on a daily basis but you do not have to follow it strictly (individually according to your needs). brish your teeth with it or for better effect you may use it after brushing your teeth - squeeze a small amount (a pea size) onto your toothbrush ( also other things can be used such as cotton tip, may be used your finger ) and spread it on all your teeth surfaces (with a help of your tongue) and leave it to work for min. 2-5 minutes. Do not swallow the cream, just spread it around your teeth thoroughly and leave it to work.

Avoid eating and drinking for 30 minutes following the application. Ideally you can use the cream before going to bed. You can also use it extra on your interdental brush or floss. In some cases it can be also used in a custom tray - especially in patients with a higher risk of dental caries. We will be happy to make individual trays for you at DUO SMILE. Should you have any wiestions we are happy to help and answer your questions about this product in our office. It is always recommended to talk to your dentist or dental hygienist about the right choice of your dental products.

You can also add the cream to the Christmas package for your loved ones together with a voucher for services in DUO SMILE. You can see our other dental wellness products here. We look forward to you!
