Our care tips for naturally beautiful teeth

Regular oral hygiene is essential not only for prevention but also for therapy of pain-sensitive teeth. The right brushing technique should be thorough but gentle.

Exert less pressure when brushing

Pressing too hard when brushing your teeth can damage the gums, lead to inflammations and thus set into motion the vicious cycle of sensitive teeth. Plaque can also be effectively brushed away using a soft toothbrush without injuring the gums or the necks of the teeth.

Proper care of children's teeth - The earlier the better

From the time the first teeth appear, one should carefully brush the teeth, in order for oral hygiene to quickly become part of the normal daily routine. With good dental care, you lay the foundation for healthy teeth into old age. The easiest way for children to learn how to properly brush their teeth is by using the "COI method": first the chewing surfaces, then the outside surfaces, and finally the inside surfaces.

  • Step 1: Chewing surfaces. First, the chewing surfaces are brushed, using back-and-forth movements. You begin on the right side, first on the bottom, then the top. Do exactly the same on the left side - first on the bottom, then the top.
  • Step 2: Outer surfaces. Have your child draw little circles with the toothbrush on the outer surfaces. Starting on the right side, work from the back to the front – repeat the same routine on the left side. Now you clench your teeth and smile: This enables you to brush your front teeth with small circles.
  • Step 3: Inside surfaces. On the inner surfaces, you begin with the rear teeth. Here the general rule is to go from red to white, i.e. from gums in the direction of the tooth. Only when children are able to spit out the toothpaste completely on their own is the use of adult toothpaste considered harmless.

Caries bacteria can be transmitted!

If you have caries bacteria in your own mouth, these can be passed on through saliva to your child. That is why you should not lick your child's spoon and continue feeding the child with it.

Use of Fluoride

 

 

At this point, we would like to make it clear why lavera offers some toothpastes with fluoride, and why we specifically exclude it from some of our other toothpaste formulas. 

Our many years of experience in the natural cosmetics market demonstrate that a great number of our customers want products that contain fluoride, while many others have made a conscious decision to avoid this substance. Parents, for example, often seek out alternatives to fluoridated toothpastes if their children are allergic or particularly sensitive. lavera also offers a range of different dental care products in order to meet the individual needs of as many customers as possible. That's why lavera offers dental care products both with and without fluoride.

 

 

Products with sodium fluoride
  • basis sensitiv Toothpaste, Mint
  • basis sensitiv Toothpaste, Sensitive
Products without sodium fluoride
  • basis sensitiv Toothpaste, Classic
  • basis sensitiv Children's Gel Toothpaste
  • Neutral Gel Toothpaste

Why doesn't lavera use fluoride in its children's gel toothpaste?

Many parents are worried that small children ingest a dangerous amount of fluoride when they swallow toothpaste. The musculature of babies' and children's mouths is not yet fully developed, which is why they swallow toothpaste more often than older children and adults. Children under three often swallow up to 60% of their toothpaste.
This is why lavera offers basis sensitiv Organic Strawberry & Organic Raspberry Gel Toothpaste for baby teeth. For older children, lavera Sensitive Toothpaste is a very good alternative.

 

Which type of fluoride does lavera use?

lavera uses high-quality sodium fluoride. Numerous tests have demonstrated that sodium fluoride makes teeth more resistant to acid and, consequently, less susceptible to tooth decay. The maximum concentration of sodium fluoride permitted in dental care products is 0.15% (1,500 ppm). Small children should only use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste (fluoride content: 500 ppm) to avoid ingesting too much of the substance. Dentists recommend that children aged six and up use toothpaste that contains more than 1,000 ppm of fluoride.

 

Sodium fluoride offers three main benefits:

  • Unlike monofluorophosphate, a type of fluoride commonly used in conventional toothpastes, sodium fluoride is an inorganic fluoride that is free from phosphate compounds. Phosphates tend to cause irritation in many people with allergies. Sodium fluoride (not to be confused with sodium monofluorophosphate) does not carry this risk of irritation.
  • Sodium fluoride works quickly and naturally.
  • Several series of tests have demonstrated that sodium fluoride neutralises oral bacteria particularly rapidly.

Frequently asked questions

Is fluoride poisonous?

There is no doubt that extreme overdoses of fluoride are harmful to the human body – but this holds true for other chemical substances, as well. It's because fluoride can be found in so many things that enter our body every day, either intentionally or unintentionally – water, food, and the like – that many consumers are afraid that they will cross the line to an 'overdose' of fluoride if they use toothpastes that contain the chemical.
However, experts believe it is practically impossible to develop a true case of fluoride poisoning as a result of using certain toothpastes. For example, a 1-year-old child of average weight would need to ingest approximately 53 ml of toothpaste. That amount is much higher for adults; it's essentially impossible for an adult to contract fluoride poisoning through the consumption of toothpaste.

Where does fluoride come from?

The sodium fluoride used in lavera Naturkosmetik's products is a fine, white powder that is odourless and mild on the skin and mucous membranes.
In nature, fluoride is only found in combination with other substances. It makes up approximately 0.065% of the 16-kilometre top layer of Earth's crust. Fluoride can also be found in many types of igneous rock. The most important fluoride mineral is calcium fluoride. Additionally, fluoride can be found in a number of different types of rock, including cryolite, apatite, topaz, mica, and many more.
Traces of fluoride compounds can also be found in many organisms. Tea, asparagus, and fish have a very high fluoride content. Foods containing fluoride include table salt, drinking water, and milk.
