Tooth Care Answers

Dental Care Products

We recommend using simple products with ingredients you can pronounce and don't have to worry about ingesting. We recommend using products with hydroxyapatite instead of fluoride.

Fluoride vs Hydroxyapatite

There is no fluoride originally in the tooth, So why are we adding back something we never had? We use products that have hydroxyapatite the mineral that a tooth is actually made of.

Toothpaste Ingredients

We also recommend products that have hydroxyapatite which will strengthen teeth and prevents cavities. Look for simple ingredients for the best results.

Tooth Powders

Combining the powerful effects of hydroxyapatite and bentonite clay with healing essential oils, this tooth powder helps to rebuild the enamel in a tooth.
