“Elsenz is a unique toothpaste with fluoride containing bioactive glass that puts back the lost minerals from tooth enamel, helps to prevent tooth decay and treats sensitivity”
Tooth sensitivity is the condition of a short, sharp pain experienced on consumption of hot or cold food or/and beverages. The outermost layer of our teeth is enamel, covering the crown of tooth, the cementum covers the root of the tooth and dentine is the inner layer. Tooth sensitivity is caused when the tooth enamel is worn away and the dentine is exposed. There are several ways in which tooth enamel can be worn away, thereby exposing the dentine, leaving the teeth prone to sensitivity.
Consuming acidic foods and drinks
When exposed dentine comes into contact with anything hot, cold, sweet, or sour, it can trigger the nerves and cause a short sharp pain. Even breathing in cold air can trigger pain in sensitive teeth.
Elsenz is comprised of Fluoro calcium phosphosilicate which is an improved form of bioactive glass. Elsenz forms acid resistant fluorapatite as well as releases fluoride over a period of 8 – 12 hours. This combined action of apatite formation and ion release makes Elsenz a unique toothpaste to use for remineralization and treating teeth sensitivity.
Elsenz contain fluoride containing bioactive glass. The addition of fluoride into bioactive glasses can provide numerous advantages. Elsenz dissolve in the mouth releasing calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions and form fluorapatite which is more resistant to acid attack than hydroxyapatite and hydroxycarbonate apatite. Incorporating fluoride into the glass also speeds up the apatite formation process. For these reasons, fluoride is incorporated into bioactive glasses.
Elsenz contain almost three times high phosphate than that of conventional bioactive glass. High phosphate in bioactive glass forms apatite faster which helps to relieve sensitivity quicker than currently available bioactive glasses and forms fluorapatite rather than fluorite with the minimal possible pH rise.
The particles of Elsenz are designed to be small enough to enter into the dentinal tubules where they convert to either fluorapatite or apatite mimicking the natural biological mineralization process of enamel. Smaller particle size also reduces abrasivity of toothpaste which results in less enamel wear.
Elsenz is designed to dissolve faster under acidic conditions offering added protection when teeth are directly challenged with acidic food or drinks. Elsenz dissolves quickly raising the pH and releasing calcium, phosphate and appropriate quantity of fluoride ions to minimize the acid dissolution of the apatite crystals.
Elsenz particles chemically bind to tooth surface.
Slowly dissolve to release Calcium, Phosphate, and fluoride ions into saliva.
Ions precipitate & crystallize to form Fluorapatite over dentin surface and within the dentinal tubules.
Sustained release of fluoride ions, rebuilds and strengthens enamel day & night
For Faster Relief in Sensitivity & Stronger Remineralization
Minimal pH Rise
Elsenz contains Fluoro calcium phosphosilicate which is an advanced bioactive glass. Elsenz forms acid resistant fluorapatite as well as releases fluoride over a period of 8 to 12 hours. This combined action of apatite formation and ion release makes Elsenz a unique toothpaste to use for remineralization and treating dentine hypersensitivity.
During brushing, Elsenz chemically binds to tooth surface and slowly releases calcium, phosphate and fluoride ions, which together with a slight pH rise, result in super saturation of the saliva with regard to apatite and subsequently precipitation of apatite crystals over dentin surface and within the dentinal tubules. Such a mechanism relieves sensitivity and promotes remineralisation.
Incorporating fluoride into the bioactive glass speeds up the apatite formation process rather than forming hydroxycarbonate apatite, forms fluorapatite, which is much more durable in the mouth. The fluorapatite is highly resistant to acid attack than hydroxyapatite and hydroxycarbonate -apatite. For these reasons, fluoride may be incorporated into bioactive glasses
Elsenz contains smaller particle size than conventional bioactive glass, which helps the bioglass better penetrate dentinal tubules to occlude open dentinal tubules and relieve sensitivity. Smaller particle size also reduces abrasivity of toothpaste and enamel wear.
Conventional fluoride toothpaste use soluble source of fluoride such as sodium fluoride and sodium monofluorophosphate which are washed away rapidly by the salivary flow in the mouth. In contrast Elsenz dissolves slowly, releasing controlled level of fluoride for up to 12 hours and protect teeth day and night from acid attack.
Elsenz prevents acid dissolution by acting quickly during consumption of acidic foods/drinks. Elsenz dissolves quickly raising the pH and releasing calcium, phosphate and appropriate quantity of fluoride ions to minimize the acid dissolution of the apatite crystals.
Elsenz can be used everyday twice in a day even after the pain in sensitivity disappears. Elsenz will give continuous protection from tooth decay and sensitivity on prolonged usage.
Elsenz should be applied on the sensitive tooth with a finger. Leave it for 2 to 3 minutes and brush with a super soft toothbrush as usual for 2 minutes and spit out.
