The travel size is plastic with an aluminum coated cap. We are transitioning to a total plastic cap as well. Both are 3oz and accepted by TSA
Our nano-silver is not ionic and is also encapsulated with a green synthesis using an exopolysaccharide coating which aids in its biodegradation after use.
Awareness to oral hygiene is the greatest hurdle, so the fact you are being conscious, and taking action is never a bad thing. To explain the difference; Fluoride uses an acid-base reaction for remineralization, we feel this is inferior to a pH balance calcium ion exchange model (which Elementa uses). Acidic bases also leave the pH in an acidic environment which is selective for bacteria that also thrive in those environments. Elementa’s model is to create a probiotic environment so the healthy bacteria are thriving, while also a pH for optimal remineralization.
Our product outperformed a fluoride product by 250-700%.
Either way you are fine. Fluoride’s main hurdle is the biofilm and at daily concentrations it struggles to reach critical remineralization point, however the topical fluoride or varnish your dentist applies is the highest concentration used in dentistry and will have the greatest effect, but due to the potential toxicity it can only be applied by your dentist and isn’t recommended frequently.
Sensitivity is actually a calcium deficiency based on the Calcium Ion Exchange model. A lot of the sensitivity products contain potassium nitrate which aim to increase the bioavailability of calcium around the tooth, but they also use an acidic-base which can interfere with the re-uptake. Elementa stabilizes the pH around the tooth to the optimal pH for remineralization and then delivers 100x the amount of calcium. We feel this process is superior. If you are still having issues with sensitivity I would try Elementa only for a few weeks. Brush (30secs quadrant), rinse for a full minute after, with no eating or drinking for ½ hour. In the evening after you rinse, then take a small pea-sized amount and gently massage it into the sensitive area for a full minute, do not rinse after and let it sit while you sleep. You can do this to multiple areas, or even use your brush to gently massage it into larger areas. We have clinically found complete reduction in tooth sensitivity with this regimen and continued use.
There is no set period and depends on an individual’s habits and saliva (chewing vs holding). The biggest advantage to the mints is the xylitol concentration. Xylitol is fantastic because it puts bacteria in a “starved-state” and alkalizes at the same time. This will help neutralize the acid spike we see after eating and drinking, so I recommend them as an after dinner mint (2-3) when you can’t brush, or in between meals.
No, the benefit comes from the xylitol
