I know...I know...everyone thinks they need fluoride to keep their teeth healthy and remineralize soft spots.  Right?  Wrong!  Let me introduce you to the future of dentistry.  It's called nano hydroxyapatite (HAp) and it's been the gold standard in Japan for preventing decay since the early 80's.  Also, NASA has successfully been using it to help astronauts with the side effects from space to help remineralize their bone and enamel.

So what is nano hydroxyapatite?  It's a form of calcium that makes up 97% of your tooth enamel, 70% of the dentin of your teeth and 60% of your bone structure.    What's so amazing about HAp is that it helps to remineralize (rebuild) tooth structure without any known side effects, unlike fluoride, which has a "harmful if swallowed" label on the box.  Fluoride is also associated with increased risks of at least 11 medical conditions and is considered to be a mutagen.  Why use something that is a chemical when you can use something that is completely bio-identical to enamel without the Poison Control warning.  HAp replaces the minerals your teeth lose when they’re demineralized and fills in the tiny “fissures” in your teeth that otherwise play host to bacteria.

Because your teeth recognize this compound, they absorb and "soak up" the hydroxyapatite down to the root which is very beneficial in preventing decay as HAp can help to rebuild enamel on any tooth surface.  Also, because the particle size is so small, HAp really helps with tooth sensitivity.

The way your teeth react to hydroxyapatite also makes them more resistant to plaque buildup and the acid that erodes enamel leading to tooth decay. It can even make them look “shinier.”

Ditch the toxins and try Simply Silver Spearmint Mouthwash with nano hydroxyapatite and trace minerals to see what it can do for you.

Remember....Simply Silver...simply smile!

If you are on social media, chances are you are no stranger to the charcoal or bentonite clay toothpaste advertisements telling you that they can make your teeth whiter.  But, is this true?  Being a dental hygienist for 25 years, I can tell you emphatically, no!

In my previous blog about why I don't recommend fluoride, I mentioned that fluoride was used as a rat poison.  I know this may surprise people, but the reason why it was so effective in killing rodents is because of its protoplasmic ability.  That means the fluoride changes the permeability of the cell membrane by inhibiting certain enzymes. Here is a link to the history of fluoride and proof of its use as an insecticide
