Natural Toothpaste with a Fluoride Substitute
Fluoride Free

Our Moothpaste took us years to develop after talking with both dental practitioners and our customers. Our aim was to provide the benefits of Fluoride to those that prefer not to use this ingredient.

Fluoride is needed to assist remineralization. When scratches and cracks appear in your teeth, Fluroride helps fill these cracks in in before bacteria can cause tooth decay.  Surprisingly, there are other alternatives to Fluoride with good evidence that would suit many people.  They just cost a little more and are tricky to formulate with. But we did it and we think it is worth the few cents more per brushing. 

"Nano-hydroxyapatite is a revolutionary material with a wide use in dentistry. With regard to restorative and preventive fields, nano-hydroxyapatite has remarkable remineralizing effects on initial lesions of enamel, certainly higher than traditional fluorides used until now for this purpose. Nano-hydroxyapatite is, in fact, a better source of free Ca, and this is a key element as regards the remineralization, the protection against caries and dental erosion." (A Journal of Odonontostomatologia Science.)

We do not use Glycerin as this can coat the teeth preventing remineralization. We do not use SLS, nor Titanium Dioxide, nor the type of preservatives we would not be comfortable having our children consume. We certainly don't use Triclosan...actually commercial toothpaste is almost a dictionary of ingredients that are against our ingredient philosophy. Never looked at them? We have one of the largest commercial toothpaste's list of ingredients below.

For those new to natural toothpaste, you may find it a little different to the main commercial brands. Natural cleansers do not hold their foam as long as Sodium Lauryl Sulphate.

Considering how much toothpaste we swallow, and children often swallowing it all, we think this small compromise is worth it.

We have always relied on evidence bases for our ingredients. Below are the evidence sources for hydroxyapatite and we are always open to any other formulation suggestions to make our products better for teeth whilst also being as edible as possible.

 

Directions

Directions: Smear on toothpaste and clean those toothypegs at least twice a day for 2-3 minutes. If brushing manually, use vertical or circular strokes. Not too hard! Also floss. If you don’t normally floss, try it for 1 week and you will never look back.

Studies Supporting HA as a Remineralising Alternative

 

Nano-hydroxyapatite and its applications in preventive, restorative and regenerative dentistry: a review of literature

The nano-hydroxyapatite is a revolutionary material with a wide use in dentistry. With regard to restorative and preventive fields, nano-hydroxyapatite has remarkable remineralizing effects on initial lesions of enamel, certainly higher than traditional fluorides used until now for this purpose. Nano-hydroxyapatite is, in fact, a better source of free Ca, and this is a key element as regards the remineralization, the protection against caries and dental erosion. With regard to the latter point, of fundamental importance in dentistry, the road leading to the addition of small percentages of nano-HA (0.25%) in beverages such as mineral supplements for sports activities, in order to prevent tooth erosion caused by those drinks, seems very promising. Nano-HA has also been used as a supplementary material, in order to improve the dental materials already existing and widely used. This is the case of the experimental addition to traditional GIC, a procedure that has led to significant improvements in the mechanical properties of these substances.

 

Enamel and Dentine Remineralization by Nano-Hydroxyapatite Toothpastes

 

 

Objectives

This in vitro study evaluated the effects of nano-hydroxyapatite (n-HAp) toothpastes on remineralization of bovine enamel and dentine subsurface lesions.

Methods

Specimens were demineralized, randomly divided into five groups, and exposed to an aqueous remineralizing solution for two and five weeks (37 °C). Brushing procedures were performed with the respective toothpaste/storage solution slurry twice daily (2 × 5 s; total contact time of the slurries 2 × 120 s/d): storage in remineralizing solution only (0); additional brushing with B (20 wt% zinc carbonate nano-hydroxyapatite, ZnCO3/n-HAp); BS (24 wt% ZnCO3/n-HAp); E (0.14 wt% amine fluoride); or A (7 wt% pure n-HAp). Differences in mineral loss (ΔΔZ) before and after storage/treatment were microradiographically evaluated.

Results

Dentine groups 0, B, BS, and A showed significantly higher ΔΔZ values compared to E (p < 0.05; ANOVA). Enamel ΔΔZ values of group A were significantly higher compared to group E (p < 0.05), whilst no significant differences of these groups could be observed compared to 0, B, and BS (p > 0.05).

Conclusions

With the in vitro conditions chosen, toothpastes containing n-HAp revealed higher remineralizing effects compared to amine fluoride toothpastes with bovine dentine, and comparable trends were obtained for enamel.

Remineralization Potential of New Toothpaste Containing Nano-Hydroxyapatite

A tooth specimen, on which artificial incipient caries had been induced, was immersed into two toothpaste slurries for remineralization. One contains nano-sized hydroxyapatite and fluoride, and the other contains nano-sized hydroxyapatite excluding fluoride. In order to evaluate the remineralization effect, the Vickers Hardness Number & SEM image of the enamel surface was evaluated at each step. There were significant differences in VHN values between those obtained before and after the remineralization steps. The results showed that the remineralization effect increased with increasing immersing time (P<0.05). However, there were no significant differences in VHN values between the two groups (P>0.05). SEM also demonstrated differences the in micro surface at each step. In conclusion, a toothpaste containing nano-sized hydroxyapatite has the potential to remineralize an incipient caries lesion. In addition, the addition of fluoride had no synergistic effect on remineralization.

Enamel Surface Remineralization using Synthetic Nanohydroxyapatite

Objective

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effects of synthetically processed (nano) hydroxyapatite particles in remineralization of the early enamel lesions in comparison with 2% sodium fluoride.

Materials and Methods

Thirty sound human premolars were divided into nanohydroxyapatite group (n = 15) and the sodium fluoride group (n = 15). The specimens were subjected to demineralization before being coated with 10% aqueous slurry of 20 nm nanohydroxyapatite or 2% sodium fluoride. The remineralizing efficacy of the materials was evaluated using surface microhardness (SMH) measurements, scanning microscopic analysis and analysis of the Ca/P ratio of the surface enamel. Data analysis was carried out using paired t-test and independent t-test.

Results

The results showed that the nanohydroxyapatite group produced a surface morphology close to the biologic enamel, the increase in mineral content (Ca/P ratio) was more significant in the nanohydroxyapatite group (P< 0.05) and the SMH recovery was closer to the baseline level in the nanohydroxyapatite group (P < 0.05). Both the groups did not show any significant difference in thickness (P > 0.05).

Conclusion

The use of biomimetic nanohydroxyapatite as a remineralizing agent holds promise as a new synthetic enamel biocompatible material to repair early carious lesions.
