How to remineralise your teeth

How to remineralise your teeth

Having mineralised teeth is crucial for oral health. If your teeth are not properly mineralised, which is called hypomineralisation or hypocalcification, several problems can arise, impacting you’re your oral health and overall well-being. These problems may include:

  • Increased Susceptibility to Tooth Decay: Mineralized enamel is hard and protects teeth from decay. Hypomineralized teeth have weaker enamel, making them more prone to cavities and decay.
  • Tooth Sensitivity: Poorly mineralized enamel can lead to increased tooth sensitivity.
    This means that your teeth may hurt when exposed to hot, cold, sweet, or acidic foods and drinks.
  • Weaker Tooth Structure: Teeth with insufficient mineralization are structurally weaker, making them more prone to chipping, cracking, and breaking.
  • Aesthetic Concerns: Hypomineralization often results in discoloration, with affected teeth appearing white, yellow, or brown. Understandably, no one wants yellow teeth 😉
  • Difficulty in Chewing: Weaker teeth may make it difficult to chew certain foods, potentially affecting your diet and nutrition.
  • Higher Risk of Dental Erosion: Acidic foods and drinks can more easily erode the enamel of hypomineralized teeth, leading to further damage and decay.
  • Increased Risk of Infection: Weaker enamel and increased decay risk can lead to more frequent and severe dental infections, which can spread to other parts of the body if left untreated.

After reading about all the negative side effects of having poorly mineralized teeth, let’s dive into the solutions we found to fight this problem. Here are some ways to remineralize your teeth:


Brush with Nano Hydroxyapatite Toothpaste

Brushing with nano hydroxyapatite toothpaste can help strengthen enamel by depositing nano hydroxyapatite particles onto tooth surfaces, promoting remineralization. We will soon be releasing a toothpaste with hydroxyapatite. Stay tuned! (1)


Floss with Expandable Floss Daily

Daily flossing with expandable floss helps remove food particles and plaque, supporting overall oral health and reducing the risk of enamel demineralization.  (1)

Don’t know which floss to buy? Georganics made a floss that is plastic-free and vegan ! You should give it a try.


Use a Tongue Scraper Daily

Tongue scraping is an effective oral hygiene practice that helps remove bacteria and debris from the surface of the tongue. This process not only promotes fresher breath by eliminating the sources of bad odour but also supports overall oral health. By reducing the number of harmful bacteria in the mouth, tongue scraping can indirectly aid in the remineralization of teeth, as it minimizes the bacterial load that contributes to tooth decay and demineralization. Additionally, regular tongue scraping can enhance taste sensation and improve the overall cleanliness of the mouth, making it a valuable addition to daily dental care routines. Try our Beechwood tongue scraper which will soon be back in stock!  (1)


Use Alcohol-Free Mouthwash

Did you know that most of regular mouthwash contains alcohol? The alcohol in the mouthwash will kill the bad bacteria but also the good bacteria which can lead to an imbalance of the whole system. Therefore, using alcohol-free mouthwash is gentler and will still freshen your breath, reduce harmful bacteria growth, and help maintain a favourable environment for remineralization when needed for additional oral care. Try out our non-toxic mouthwash tablets available in various flavours: English Peppermint, Spearmint, Activated Charcoal, Tea Tree and Orange. They are perfect for travelling as it's not liquid. Want to read more about toxic ingredients in mouthwash ? Have a look at our blog 3 Toxic Ingredients Used in Mouthwash (1)


Choose a Toothbrush with Soft Bristles

Use a toothbrush with soft bristles to avoid damaging enamel and gums during brushing, contributing to a comprehensive oral routine for remineralizing teeth. (1) You can use our soft beechwood toothbrush. We sell beechwood toothbrushes with three levels of bristle firmness: soft, medium or firm depending on your needs. We even have a kids beechwood toothbrush !


Promote Healthy Saliva Production

Encourage saliva production by avoiding salty foods, chewing sugar-free gum, and drinking water. Saliva plays a crucial role in maintaining oral health as it helps neutralize acids produced by bacteria, washes away food particles, and provides essential minerals that aid in the remineralization of teeth. By promoting saliva production, you create an environment that supports the natural repair of enamel and prevents tooth decay.

In terms of sugar-free chewing gum, we invite you to try our natural chewing gum flavoured with peppermint and xylitol. Not only does it stimulate saliva flow, but xylitol also has additional benefits in reducing the risk of cavities by inhibiting the growth of harmful bacteria.


Use Fluoride Toothpaste

Fluoride toothpaste is recommended by the American Dental Association to protect teeth from plaque, cavities, and demineralization, promoting remineralization and restoring a balanced pH in the mouth. (2) At Georganics we created an organic fluoride toothpaste in three different flavours: peppermint, orange and activated charcoal.


Hopefully this article helped you to understand a bit more about the importance of taking care of your teeth and making sure that they are mineralised! Teeth lacking mineralisation will only bring you discomfort and struggles. If you implement some of the tips listed above, this should definitely help to strengthen the enamel of your teeth.
