Diet, Exercise, Snoring can damage teeth : Repair damaged teeth

It all starts with a smile and maybe a wink of the eye, a good smile needs healthy teeth. Keeping your teeth in tip-top condition is not as easy as it sounds. Staining, decay and cavities are the outcomes of poor dental health. Diet, exercise and snoring can cause damage to teeth.  Acids and sugars are the largest causes of decay, your breakfast cereal, soda or beer all are high in sugars. Oral bacteria convert those sugars to acids which slowly dissolve your teeth away. BioMin toothpaste can help repair damaged teeth.

Even exercise can be bad for your teeth. Endurance training[i] and events such as running or cycling cause dehydration, dehydration increase the strength of acids in the mouth, effectively speeding up the decay process. Researches have even shown that performance can be significantly be affected by poor oral health.

Do you snore like a chainsaw? There is a good chance you’re a mouth-breather. A study conducted at the University of Otago[ii] showed that mouth breathers can have acid levels equal to those found in a car battery. At these levels enamel rapidly dissolves, and your dentist could make your speed dial.

Luckily preventing issues developing and helping fix existing issues may be as simple as using a remineralising (repair) toothpaste. These can help replace lost tooth minerals and reverse the damage to your teeth.  A new high-performance variant from the UK even works whilst you sleep. Replacing lost minerals, helping to neutralise acids and create a protective barrier. It has rapidly become ProductReview.com.au’s No.1 rated toothpaste brand.

BTW ages 6+ can use BioMin F.
