THE NEXT GENERATION IN REMINERALIZATION

Be looking for the name NovaMin, hopefully it will soon become an ingredient in most toothpastes. Research shows it is likely that NovaMin will remineralize early decay better than fluoride, possibly making it the greatest addition to tooth care since fluoride. NovaMin delivers calcium, phosphorus, silica, and sodium in their rare ionic form, which creates a powerful tooth renewal system.

NovaMin is naturally alkaline and therefore is antibacterial, and this makes it have an anti-gingivitis effect when added to toothpaste. " A study published in The Journal of Periodontology showed that a toothpaste containing NovaMin reduced bleeding in just six weeks".

People get decay for one of three reasons; improper oral hygiene; acid attack; or inadequate remineralization. Education is needed for the improper oral hygiene, but NovaMin increases the pH to normal range and boosts the essential minerals to help with remineralization. NovaMin is very safe and non toxic. It has the same naturally occurring minerals that are in your saliva.


MORE DENTAL TIDBITS

Did you know that stem cells have been found in both extracted wisdom teeth and in front baby teeth that still have a portion of root remaining?

This is significant in multiple ways:

  1. The ethical issue of stem cells can be avoided because wisdom teeth would be thrown away anyway.
  2. Wisdom teeth that had been extracted three years before and preserved in a freezer have been used.
  3. In theory people could have teeth saved and used for stem cells later in life if needed for treatment.

These stem cells can be developed into other kinds of human cells. Baby teeth cells multiplied rapidly, stayed alive in culture for months, and could differentiate into nerve-like cells, dentin, bone, and fat cells. Baby tooth cells grow much faster than adult cells so may have the potential to develop into a wider variety of tissue types.

There is an exception of lots of wisdom teeth being donated. This would enable scientists to create stem cells of various genetic codes, eliminating the risk that a patient would reject transplant tissue or organs.
