Teeth Remineralization

How do teeth demineralize?

Teeth demineralization is a process of losing minerals from the tooth enamel. This can occur due to acid attacks from bacteria in dental plaque, acidic foods, and drinks, or other factors that drop the pH level in saliva. Tooth demineralization can weaken the enamel, making teeth more vulnerable to cavities, sensitivity, discoloration, and other problems.

How to remineralize teeth? 

Tooth remineralization is a natural process by which the minerals that make up the enamel and dentin of teeth are restored or replenished. This process involves the absorption of minerals from saliva and other sources, which then bond with the tooth structure to strengthen the enamel and dentin.

The remineralization process can be enhanced by adding hydroxyapatite to your oral hygiene regimen. By using hydroxyapatite toothpaste, it promotes the deposition of minerals in the teeth and prevents the further loss of tooth structure. Following a good oral hygiene routine will help support the natural remineralization process and keep their teeth in optimal condition.

Good Oral Hygiene Routine:

  1. Brush and floss regularly
  2. Eat a balanced diet
  3. Visit your holistic dentist regularly

Additionally, your biological dentist can provide additional support and help prevent future dental problems by analyzing your oral microbiome and pH of your saliva. Using nano-hydroxyapatite toothpaste can help to strengthen the enamel and remineralize any areas that may have been weakened. Your dentist may recommend extra preventative measures if you have a history of demineralization. This is especially true if you are at higher risk due to certain conditions or medications. Such measures include dental sealants and ozone therapy.

Maintaining good oral hygiene is important. Limit sugary and acidic foods to prevent demineralization and routine biological cleaning to evaluate your saliva's pH level.
