① Remove stains on the surface of the teeth to remove the stains and make the person’s original teeth white.
② “bleach and whiten teeth as much as possible” using chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide,
③Put veneer of desired color on the surface of teeth and make it “white” by “changing to your desired color”
Regarding② “whitening teeth as much as possible”, bleaching agents such as hydrogen peroxide are very irritating, and unlike Japan, oral care products are not approved in Japan. Considering daily absorption of chemical components through mucous membranes, the use of bleach in the oral cavity for several decades at home every day poses a health problem.
Also, it is not easy to do at home to “change to your desired color” such as “white” in ③, and covering the surface of the tooth may interfere with remineralization of the tooth, so at the dental clinic. We recommend the following procedure.
Those who want to make their teeth whiter than their original color, those who want to change to their favorite color such as “pure white”, those who want to cure discoloration of teeth due to aging or disease, and discoloration of tooth decay or nerves. It is advisable to consult a specialist such as a dentist for treatment instead of making an amateur decision.
As for “tobacco tar” caused by smoking, since it is “tar” that is harder to remove than wine or curry stains, “tar tar” or “abrasive” should be used to remove the tar, or if the enamel is thin, it is dental. We recommend “bleaching” with a drug at a doctor’s office.
As a result of various examinations and verifications regarding “to remove stains and make the person’s original whiteness” that can be done every day even at home, for those who do not smoke and especially those who are hyperesthesia Considered better.
● “Abrasive” “Paste type toothpaste”
● “Foam toothpaste”
● “Chemically synthesized toothpaste”
● “Dentifrice containing alcohol (ethanol)”
First of all, you can easily whiten your teeth by using “abrasives” and “paste-type toothpaste”, but the enamel of your teeth is gradually damaged by daily use, and the teeth become yellow due to over-shaping. This can lead to things and hyperesthesia.
Abrasives are “calcium carbonate” (Ca carbonate, limestone powder, white line powder on the playground, raw material for chalk) “sodium hydrogen carbonate” (Na bicarbonate, baking soda) “salt” “charcoal” (charcoal) “Zeolite” (zeolite) “micro beads” (plastic particles), etc.
When polishing with an “abrasive” or “paste-type toothpaste”, the enamel may be gradually scraped and thinned, and dentin may become transparent and the teeth may become yellow.
Even with substances (abrasives) that are softer than tooth enamel, in combination with the hardness of the toothbrush and the strength of brushing, there are many cases where even hard enamel is scraped off by daily polishing for many years.
Like skin and hair, a person’s “tooth” is as different as their individuality. The same dentifrice is not suitable for all people, and in the future era it will be important to carry out each type of “dental care”.
Too much shaving will pass the white teeth and turn yellow and cause hyperesthesia. The scratches created by the abrasive are more likely to develop into caries.
Damaged enamel can be remineralized and repaired by 1.5 ℓ to 2 ℓ saliva secreted per day, but it cannot be repaired if it is damaged too much. Please be careful as important teeth that have been ground too much cannot be restored.
Those who are worried may be able to scrape off the enamel even if the compounding purpose is not indicated as an “abrasive”. Therefore, “Ca carbonate (limestone)” “Na bicarbonate (baking soda)” “Zeolite ( I think it is necessary to check whether or not “zeolite””, “micro beads (plastic)”, “salt”, etc. are mixed.
Although you can “brush your teeth” with “abrasives” and “paste-type toothpaste”, it may damage the taste buds, and may cause damage to the tongue, gums, inside cheeks, upper jaw, oral mucosa, etc. “Oral care” becomes difficult.
As a result, you may have to buy a new product for “oral care”, which is a burden to your household, it may be an obstacle to be placed in a limited space, and you may lose the aesthetics of the interior. ..
Next, the reasons for not using “dentifrice with foaming agent” are as follows.
“Effervescent agents” means “synthetic surfactants” such as “sodium lauryl sulfate” “lauryl glucoside” “cocamidopropyl betaine” “Na cocoyl glutamate”, “soap base” “coconut oil fatty acid K” “olive fatty acid” “Soap” such as “K”. At first, the history of toothpaste was only “polishing powder”, but about 100 years ago, paste containing a foaming agent appeared.
“Synthetic surfactants” and “soaps” may be added because they give a feeling of brushing teeth due to foaming and can emulsify the components water and oil (surface active). However, brushing teeth does not mean decomposing the oil stains in the mouth and teeth, so it is considered that foaming agents such as “synthetic surfactants” and “soaps” are virtually unnecessary. I will.
Brushing your teeth with “synthetic surfactant” or “soap” is the same as brushing your teeth with shampoo or solid soap at home, so I think you can try it. I also think that it is not very pleasant to lather the brim or plaque and spread it in your mouth.
On the other hand, there is a possibility that side effects may occur, instead of expecting a little effect. If you use a dentifrice with a “foaming agent”, it’s much better if you rush and strongly polish before foam overflows from the mouth, or if the foam overflows is the end (time limit). I think there are many. If you rush and polish strongly, the enamel will be further scraped off with an “abrasive”, which may cause yellowing of the teeth and hypersensitivity.
If the mouth soon becomes full of bubbles and overflows from the mouth, it will be impossible to carefully brush each tooth, tooth gap, and periodontal tooth and polish it. As a result, there is always the possibility of being left unpolished, resulting in caries, periodontal disease, tartar deposition and bad breath.
Next, the reasons for not using “dentifrice containing chemically synthesized ingredients” are as follows.
Although it is not well known, it is said that the absorption and ingestion of chemical components from the oral mucosa is 10 to 20 times that of the skin. Absorption of chemical components from the oral mucosa into the body during tooth brushing several times daily for decades should be avoided as much as possible for those who are concerned about food and health, pregnant women, women and infants.
Next, the reason why we do not use “dentifrice containing alcohol (ethanol)”.
In the process of evolution, humans and animals have acquired the physiological action of cleaning and keeping teeth clean without brushing them. The important thing to do that is saliva. “Saliva” plays an important role in washing away dirt and preventing it from sticking to your teeth.
However, if the mouth is dry, the cleaning effect of saliva will be weakened, and stains and tartar, which should not adhere, will adhere. Therefore, in order to keep teeth white, “moisturizing” in the oral cavity is also important, and especially for those with a small amount of saliva, we believe that the use of “alcohol (ethanol)-containing toothpaste” that can cause dry mouth should be avoided. I will.
The same thing can be said of tooth stains on the astringency of tea in cups and the burns on frying pans. Detergent (foaming agent/surfactant) and alcohol (ethanol) are not very effective for tea astringent and kogye that do not fall off even after washing.
To remove tea and astringent, I think that abrasives (compound, stone powder), polishing sponge, and steel wool are often used. You can easily remove dirt and scorching by rubbing with an abrasive or a file, but the surface will be covered with small scratches.
Even an abrasive (stone powder) that should be harder than a metal such as iron will scratch a lot of metal while rubbing it with a brush.
In addition, the new scratches that you made become dirty and become dirty easily, and eventually you get dirty, dirty, and the bacteria easily propagate on the wound, and it becomes a dirty state. Also, if the surface is shaved too much to make it white, the base will come out and it will be impossible to repair. And if you don’t scratch it in the first place, it will be less likely to get dirty.
On the other hand, if you use chemicals such as bleach, the chemicals will penetrate even small scratches and the cups and pans will turn white immediately. However, a drug that has the strength of turning a black one into a white one is highly irritating, and there is a problem in using it with bare hands every time considering the safety to the human body. It is not very good for your health if you don’t wash it well and keep your family eating tea and food using cups and frying pans with chemicals and chemically synthesized ingredients attached to them every day.
The same can be said for the teeth, mouth, and human body.
Based on the above premise, “The most effective and efficient from the viewpoint of risk/benefit, in order to prevent excessive enamel scraping and mucous membrane absorption of chemical components by everyday laymen, and to maintain the original healthy health and beautiful mouth and teeth.・The research team believes that “healthy and reasonable methods” are as follows.
“Daily oral care is a gel formulation product that contains a formulation that responds to bacteria that cause problems in the oral cavity and that is gentle to the body and safe to absorb into the body. , Maintain the tooth surface clean by thoroughly brushing it, and moisturize the oral cavity to enhance the saliva cleansing action and prevent pigmentation. Effective and safe whitening treatment based on medical viewpoints by dentists in the clinic.”
