Calcium Toothbrushes / MouthRinse
I have found these calcium toothbrushes and the calcium mouthrinse to be useful. They are very inexpensive, something like $3 per toothbrush and $3 per bottle of Cal Mouth Rinse. They also have Calcium Zinc Chips (about $3) that are useful if there is infection present. Here is some of their info below.
The Calcium/Zinc Toothbrush carries its own antiseptic brushing agent for gum infection, teeth cleaning, bad breath, decay prevention, teeth whitening and desensitizing. For the most natural refreshing cleaning, use the CZ Toothbrush anytime and anywhere, as often as you like, whatever you are doing. No sloppy toothpaste or rinsing. Give your mouth and teeth a mild Calcium Treatment in 3 to 5 minutes. The CZ Toothbrush will remain active for 8 months to a year.
Oral-Cal Mouth Rinse is an 8 oz bottle of a Calcium/Zinc solution to clean and soothe the mouth tissues, to reduce bleeding of gums, and to desensitize teeth, as well as strengthen teeth, their ligaments, and the oral bone. Regular use of the Oral-Cal Mouth Rinse reduces plaque, stains, bad breath, calculus, sensitivity, decay and soothes canker sores or similar gum irritations. Furthermore, routine use of the CZ-Toothbrush with the CZ Mouth Rinse as a brushing agent, or with Calcium Carpules, whitens tooth structure.
Calcium Transport & Tooth Decay are very much related according to recent studies. The tooth, even the enamel, is continually de-mineralizing (losing calcium) and re-mineralizing (gaining calcium). When tooth structure loses calcium – it becomes quite susceptible to acid and decay. When it picks up calcium, it resists both. Re-mineralization must occur at a “slow enough rate” to allow “calcium transport” into the tooth. This is exactly what we’ve seen for years on patients who have the Calcium Therapy or use CTI products: i.e. less calculus, less sensitivity, less decay, less stain.
Calcium and pH tests were made on calcium materials in water (aqueous medium) and calcium in oils (oily medium) to determine the “ideal vehicle” for calcium ion release (ionic dissociation) and acid/base levels (pH). The ideal vehicle should allow a gradual and slow release of calcium ions and the pH level should remain tissue tolerant. The aqueous calcium vehicles allowed far greater ionic dissociation (release). This is verified by the resultant calcium concentration in the aqueous solution, as well as by the increase in pH. These physical-chemical properties have shown to increase the antimicrobial properties of the aqueous calcium solutions. The oily solutions remained almost insignificant as vehicles for calcium release or pH change. Also, the aqueous vehicles release significant calcium and raise the pH level within two hours, reaching maximum levels after four weeks.
