What is Hydroxyapatite? Hydroxyapatite (or HAp) is the main building block in your enamel and dentin. It is loaded with calcium and phosphate, both of which are great for building strong teeth and bones. When you use HAp toothpaste, you’re literally feeding your teeth. Rebuilding what you’ve lost from acid demineralization (a process that happens when harmful bacteria in our mouths use plaque and food debris to produce acid and break down tooth structure, leading to cavities). Hydroxyapatite is a natural way to help with remineralization of the teeth and reduce risk for cavities.
Benefits of Hydroxyapatite: It can prevent and heal cavities. It’s non-toxic and biocompatible. It may help teeth appear whiter and improve gum health. It’s good for the oral microbiome. It’s resistant to acidic pH. It’s kid-friendly!
Next time you’re at the dentist, remember to ask about hydroxyapatite toothpaste.
