Studies say Teeth Whitening kits Preserve Enamel

Monday, August 6th, 2012

They’re already the most effective teeth whitening products on the market, but researchers have now confirmed that gel-and-tray bleaching kits also preserve tooth enamel, rather than eroding dental minerals. This means that you can whiten your teeth and neutralize bad breath while maintaining strong, healthy chompers.

JADA confirms

In a study published in the Journal of the American Dental Association, researchers from Sao Paulo, Brazil, set out to test the effects of teeth whitening kits on tooth enamel. To do so, the team recruited 80 volunteers, each of whom received one of four bleaching agents.

The authors then regularly took enamel samples during and after the bleaching process, analyzing them for levels of calcium and phosphorus.

The Science of Teeth Whitening

Monday, December 19th, 2011

With cavities and periodontal disease less of a concern, more dental patients have turned their attention to improving their overall appearance with teeth whitening. Cosmetic treatments have become the most common service requests from dental patients, with more than ten million Americans spending $1.7 billion a year on teeth whitening products and services. Teeth whitening refers to “any procedure that changes the shade and appearance of teeth without using restorative materials” (1). This includes products dispensed by dental professionals and over-the-counter products.

Studies have shown patients who feel good about their physical appearance tend to adjust to illnesses better and experience shorter recuperation times.

The semi-clear, but hard outer layer tooth surface consists of enamel, which provides protection for the dentin. In 1951, a study revealed that radioisotope-labeled hydrogen peroxide could penetrate enamel to the dentin pulp. Hydrogen peroxide makes up the main ingredient in many tooth whitening products (1, 2). Other whitening products contain carbamide peroxide.

The tooth enamel is made of hydroxyapatite crystals. The formation of microscopic hexagonal rods makes the tooth enamel porous. The teeth change color due to the penetration of staining agents into the enamel, which makes it a challenge to clean the otherwise harmless stains from the tooth surface.

Causes of Teeth Discoloration

The success of teeth whitening treatments has as much to do with the type, intensity and location of the discoloration. The diagnosis performed by the dental professional represents the most important aspect of addressing tooth discoloration issues. The dentist’s evaluation determines if the discoloration  lies in the enamel surface or is a deeper staining, which affects the tooth’s structure.

What are the Best Ways to Whiten Teeth, Freshen Breath?

Saturday, November 19th, 2011

There are many ways to improve your smile, but if you want to stick to the best ways to whiten teeth, then TheraBreath may have what you need. We manufacture a special tooth whitening kit that leaves all others in the dust.

Bleaching your teeth used to be a very expensive
process, one that involved thousands of dollars and multiple trips to the dentist’s office. In those days, clinicians had to make molds of your teeth, after which it typically took more than a week before the resulting mouthpiece was ready to be used.

Then you had to visit the dentist and sit in a chair
with peroxide-filled molds in your mouth for several hours. The bleaching agent was relatively mild then, meaning that it usually required more than one such trip in order to get whiter teeth.

These days, professional tooth bleaching has come a long way, and it is now one of the best ways to whiten teeth. But it’s not the only way. In fact, many people prefer doing their own bleaching at home, since it is cheaper and can be just as effective.

Here’s how to whiten your teeth quickly and safely. First, avoid tooth-whitening kits that involve strips or brush-on paste. The latter must dry out in order to work properly, and if you accidentally salivate while it’s setting, you can leave yellow patches on your pearly whites.

Likewise, strips will bleach the front and back of each tooth, but they cannot get into the crevices, which can leave your smile looking like it has brown grout between each tooth.

The solution is to use a TheraBrite PLUS home bleaching kit, which is one of the most effective ways to whiten teeth. Its customizable molds and special carbamide peroxide gels get all sides of your teeth looking as clean and bright as porcelain.

How Many People Have Bad Breath?

Friday, August 26th, 2011

Have you ever wondered how many people actually have bad breath? Then you’re not alone. The American Dental Association (ADA) asked itself the same thing – and the results were a bit surprising.  The Council of Scientific Affairs published a report that states that a whopping 50 percent  (yes, half) of the US population has bad breath at any one time. And of that 50 percent, half of that group has chronic halitosis.

This study that was published in the Journal of ADA stated that about 90 percent of all halitosis originates from the oral cavity itself. It’s true that a small percentage of bad breath can be from diseases within the lungs, bloodstream or gastrointestinal tract, but the majority starts and lingers in palate, gums and throat. This research stated that many mouthwashes chemically mask the foul smell, while others (yes, including TheraBreath) actually get to the source of foul breath and can fix and prevent it.

The paper stated, “[A] mechanism that has been proposed for the action of mouthrinses is the inactivation of [volatile sulfur compounds] and their conversion into nonmalodorous compounds by zince salts.” TheraBreath’s patented technology works very similarly to truly clean and refresh your mouth along with helping fight gum disease and even whiten your teeth, depending on which of our mouthwashes you are using.

What does this study mean? If you’re suffering with bad breath, you definitely are not alone. However, you can be a part of the half of the American population that has fresh breath on a daily basis by using TheraBreath products.
