Tooth Enamel Fitness: A Work Out You Can't Afford To Miss
Posted on August 01 2019
Acid attacks from our foods, cracks from grinding and clenching, and less than perfect oral care habits are just a few of the ways we can end up with weakened tooth enamel.
With the hardest tissue in the human body being the tooth enamel many of us may feel there is little to worry about when it comes to our teeth. The enamel starts to grow and develop in infancy, but, unlike skin or muscles, enamel is not regenerative tissue. That means it does not keep re-growing and repairing itself throughout our lives.
Tooth enamel is built up of minerals, mostly calcium and phosphorus, in crystal form layered onto a mineral framework.
Calcium is a building block of enamel, and it also helps keep enamel hard and in good shape. There are plenty of calcium-rich foods you can use to help protect your toothy grin. In addition, for years, fluoride has been added to toothpaste and rinses to help preserve enamel health. When the tooth surface includes fluoride in the crystal structure, it is slightly harder and more acid resistant. Most recently Nano hydroxyapatite have been found can measurably increase the strength of enamel. Since it is the mineral that teeth are naturally made of, it is readily incorporated into weakened enamel, re-strengthening it.
