We are so excited about this new formula. In this formula, we have utilized every single ingredient that has shown results in remineralizing.
Theobromine has been shown to work better than fluoride and hydroxyapatite has shown amazing results in scientific studies around remineralization.
Our proprietary herb blend is comprised of the most-effective bone healing herbs from Chinese, Ayurvedic, and Western medicine. This blend provided adequate minerals and vitamins.
Bee propolis has also shown impressive results in topical remineralization.
Ozonated oil is used by most holistic dentists to halt decay and heal decaying teeth and promote a healthier oral environment.
Sesame oil is the primary oil as the base of this formula, which we selected because of it's calcium content. It is known to be the best oil to use in the mouth and gives strength to the teeth and gums.
I like to view our tooth butter as a toothpaste concentrate. Most toothpastes are diluted with water. Our has no water. Depending on the state of your mouth, you may want to dip the toothbrush under water a few times while brushing (I personally like to do this bc I often experience dry-mouth)
Other than that, you can use this toothpaste much like you would any other toothpaste! Apply it to. your brush, run it under water, and scrub your chompers!
We personally feel safe using this toothpaste on our children (ages 5 and 14 months)..
My husband swears by his method of brushing, which basically is a double brush. He brushes once and then swishes with water and spits and then brushes one more time. So that is worth trying too! He does this bc he does the first round to make sure they are clean and the second round to apply a nice, mineral-rich oil to the teeth.
You really just want to feel in to your mouth and teeth and see what feels good and right to you. There is no one "right" way to use this product, just go with your gut!
**We have tested unopened toothpastes for up to 6+ months and they have not molded. We have never had one of our opened jars mold either. However, if you are using a jar (sticking a toothbrush or fingers in there) and close the jar and leave it for many months, it CAN mold. I have only heard of this happening twice.. They are designed to be used within THREE months once used and can store UNOPENED for longer**
