Heal and Prevent Cavities with Hydroxyapatite Toothpaste

If you haven’t heard of Hydroxyapatite (HAp) toothpaste yet, listen up!

For dental health and overall wellness, I always recommend using clean, non-toxic products over conventional products. 

If you want to avoid fluoride and find a safer, non-toxic option to prevent cavities, this is the toothpaste for you.

Hydroxyapatite (hap) Toothpaste for Tooth Remineralization

Hydroxyapatite (HAp) is a form of calcium that makes up the majority of your tooth structure. It’s what makes your teeth strong and hard.

The biggest advantage of HAp toothpaste is that it helps rebuild tooth structure without any known side effects (unlike Fluoride).

Tooth decay and damage occur when the demineralization (the breakdown) of your teeth outweighs remineralization (building up). These processes are happening all the time in your mouth and are impacted by your diet, oral hygiene, oral habits, lifestyle, and overall, your oral microbiome.

You can reverse and prevent cavities by remineralizing your teeth. HAp is a powerful and safe way to do that.

Note: You can only reverse tiny, incipient cavities in the early stage of decay. More developed cavities will require dental treatment.

How does hydroxyapatite toothpaste work?

HAp replaces the minerals your teeth lose when demineralized and fills in the tiny fissures in your teeth that bacteria would otherwise attack.

HAp is also biocompatible with your teeth since it’s the same material as most of your tooth composition.

It’s also completely non-toxic and biomimetic (meaning your body recognizes it as a natural and familiar part of it).

Here’s the cool part. Since your teeth recognize HAp, they absorb hydroxyapatite down to the root, making it extremely beneficial for cavity prevention. In other words, HAp can rebuild enamel on any tooth surface by reaching down into even the furthest area of decay.

The benefits of hydroxyapatite

A bonus is that because of the way your teeth react to HAp toothpaste; it can make your teeth look whiter and more “glossy” (and who doesn’t want that?!). 

Plus, it makes your teeth more resistant to plaque buildup and enamel erosion (aka acid attacks) that lead to tooth decay. 

Tip: Don’t rinse your mouth after brushing with HAp toothpaste to allow it to remain on your teeth to prevent and reverse cavities.
