Caries – a problem that everyone knows about

Caries – a problem that everyone knows about

Caries is a widespread disease which 90% of people in the world suffer from.

This is often not due to the lack of oral and dental care, the causes are mostly elsewhere. The bad thing about Caries is, people that are affected, often suffer severely. They are accused of poor oral hygiene, although this may not be the real reason.

People with advanced carious teeth often lose the desire to smile because they are afraid that other people would see this and refer to them as unhygienic.

But that doesn’t have to be the case, because there is a solution, and this is even evidenced by several studies.

The trick here is, it is painless, looks and tastes good.

But before we present you the solution, we want to handle this theme a little further.

What is Caries?

Caries (more precisely “dental caries”) finds its origin in the Latin “Caries”, which stands for “Rottenness” and carries the technical term “dentium Caries”.

Dental caries is a disease of the hard tissue of the teeth, the enamel and dentin. This disease is caused by micro-organisms.

What causes Caries?

The development of caries can have various causes.

To explain the development of caries is not so easy, because there are a wide range of studies to do so and extensive medical knowledge is required to understand the interrelationships.

However, we would like to try it in simple terms.

A caries disease is possible when cooperating four main factors:

  • Susceptibility to disease of the tooth
  • Plaque with cariogenic bacteria
  • Low-molecular carbohydrates (especially sugar and sugared dishes included)
  • sufficient time

Apart from these four main factors, there are also several secondary factors that lead to caries, these include:

  • The position of the teeth
  • Tooth deformity
  • Salivation
  • Saliva composition
  • genetic factors
  • Composition of food

Dental caries is a disease of the teeth, due to the metabolism of bacteria. Bacteria accumulate in various ways in the human mouth. Often, this can happen either by eating or by drinking but also in children through the classic “fingers in the mouth”.

In the oral cavity, these bacteria now unite to together and form networks. A sticky substance that is known as plaque is initially formed, which is then deposited on the teeth as dental plaque is developed from these networks.

If this resulting dental plaque, also called plaque or biofilm, is not regularly and completely removed by brushing and flossing your teeth, bacteria can multiply very quickly.

Bacteria obtain their energy from the various types of sugar contained in various food and sweet drinks.

The bacteria first converts the sugar into acid. This resulting acids mainly lactic acid, now attack the tooth enamel, the tooth enamel is then decalcified.

As a result, the enamel becomes porous and the bacteria penetrate into the Interior of the tooth and destroy it from the inside out.

Saliva is the natural defense against caries

Saliva is the natural defense mechanism against caries.

Important mineral substances contained in the saliva have the task to harden the enamel, thus is the saliva is only able to repair minor damage to the enamel. When sugar is consumed too much or too often and the acid attacks the tooth last too long, because rarely, dental care is operated, the saliva has no means to meet with the repair function of the enamel.

At this moment, the natural balance is disrupted in the mouth, the saliva can no longer stop descaling, and this creates a hole in the tooth, and the tooth decays.

How fast this process starts is different from person to person. Because the acidity (Ph) of saliva is different for different people.

In humans, where the natural pH level is lower, the acid attack has a greater effect on the enamel. That it has no influence.

And how can we help you to prevent caries?

Have you ever heard of xylitol?

Xylitol is a sugar substitute, which was completely unknown until a few years ago in most countries. It originated from a Finnish study, which deals with the effect of xylitol in preventing caries.

Especially to the delight of many people who would like to nibble, or not do without sweetened drinks.

Because xylitol is capable, even if the food is barely changed, to protect your teeth from tooth decay.

First of all – xylitol is not a sweetener.

Xylitol is similar to sugar, a sweet, white fabric. But it is not sugar, but a sugar substitute. A further and well-known sugar substitute is sorbitol. Sorbitol is often used in sugar-free chewing gum.

Sugar substitutes are called sugar alcohols. The sweetness is almost as much as sugar, but has only half as many calories.

Xylitol protects your teeth from caries

It was the Finnish researchers Kauko K. Mäkinen, who already carried out two studies at the University of Turku at the beginning of the seventies and the impressive results led to todays.

In his first study, he divided the subjects into three groups:

  • The first group should eat only fruit sugar in the next 24 months instead of sugar.
  • Group two using xylitol instead of sugar.
  • The third group should continue to use the normal sugar.

Two years later, at the end of the study, following recognition showed:

  • The third group, which used the normal sugar, had well over 7 carious teeth more than at the start of the trial.
  • The fructose team, group one, was full of pride, because participants in the cut to show had only 4 carious teeth.
  • The xylitol group, group two, but enthusiastic with 0 – correct “zero” new carious teeth.

Wirkung von Xylit – gegen Karies

Xylit reduziert Plaque und schütz dabei Ihre Zähne.

Im Rahmen der Studie wurde ebenfalls entdeckt , dass sich bei den Xylit-Testpersonen nicht nur keine neue Karies gebildet hatte, selbst Zähne der Xylit-Testpersonen die vor der Studie leicht kariös waren, machten nach der Studie einen deutlich gesünderen Eindruck. Des Weiteren wurde festgestellt dass die Zahnbeläge der Xylit Gruppe, nach Ende der Studie um die Hälfte zurückging.

Nach einer weiteren Studie wurde von Wissenschaftlern um Mäkinen entdeckt, das bereits 7 Gramm Xylit pro Tag ausreichen um eine deutliche Verbesserung der Zahngesundheit zu erreichen. Im Rahmen dieser weiteren Studie wurde offenbart, das Xylit nicht gegessen werden muss, Xylit muss lediglich die Zähne und den Mundraum benetzen um die Wirkung zu erzielen.

The mother-child effect of xylitol

Xylitol does not only have the capacity to protect the teeth of the chewer, but to also protect the teeth of the offspring. Mothers who regularly consume xylitol, thus drastically reduce the risk of tooth decay in their children.

Newborns with a sterile oral cavity to the world. Caries-promoting bacteria get the children for example with the mother’s saliva maybe in a kiss, in the sharing of cutlery (feed) or through the “maternal disinfect” the soother. The lower the number of streptococci in the saliva of the mother, the lower the risk for transmission of the bacteria on the child.

And here is the solution to caries

Penta-sense pastilles with the natural active ingredient xylitol.
If you react as shocked at the word xylitol, as we did, we can assure you, it is a completely natural ingredient that is derived from nature. There is no chemical mace.

It is best to read our review about xylitol, where we explain the origin, provide information on clinical trials and all the relevant information.

To use the best possible dental protective property of xylitol, xylitol should be applied several times a day. Preferably after every meal, especially after eating sugary foods.

There is a large chewing gum manufacturer which also advertises the xylitol formula, but there’s a problem there, because 2 grams are needed to neutralize the acids in the mouth and melts slowly in your mouth. But you can’t get 2 grams of xylitol on a piece of gum.

Therefore, here is now our solution against caries – the enemy of teeth:

Penta-sense anti-caries-sucking pastilles with xylitol

known from the TV show “The den of the Lions” on Vox

Trial set:

Currently, there are four different flavours:

The sucking lozenges of Penta-sense contain 2 grams of xylitol and melt slowly in your mouth, thereby achieving the desired effect.

  • Combat harmful caries bacteria
  • Inhibit the formation of dental plaque
  • Prevent the harmful acid formation after meals and contribute to the preservation of the tooth mineralization and taste!
  • High-quality made in Germany
  • With natural active ingredient xylitol
  • Xylitol – helps also against sugar cravings
