This website is intended to give you a look at the world of lavera dental care and provide you with tips and advice on how to properly care for your teeth, especially if you have sensitive teeth.

Proper dental care is a basic prerequisite for healthy teeth. Toothpaste should do more than just carefully remove plaque. Above all, it should prevent tooth decay and keep gums healthy.

Care tips

You should brush your teeth twice a day for three minutes at a time, moving from the gums toward the teeth. Don’t brush right after eating, or the enamel that was damaged by the acidic food will essentially be ‘brushed away’. You should wait at least half an hour after eating before brushing your teeth.

It’s also important to change your toothbrush regularly.

USE OF FLUORIDE

At this point, we would like to make it clear why lavera offers some toothpastes with fluoride, and why we specifically exclude it from some of our other toothpaste formulas.

Our many years of experience in the natural cosmetics market demonstrate that a great number of our customers want products that contain fluoride, while many others have made a conscious decision to avoid this substance. Parents, for example, often seek out alternatives to fluoridated toothpastes if their children are allergic or particularly sensitive. lavera also offers a range of different dental care products in order to meet the individual needs of as many customers as possible. That’s why lavera offers dental care products both with and without fluoride.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Which type of fluoride does lavera use?

lavera uses high-quality sodium fluoride. Numerous tests have demonstrated that sodium fluoride makes teeth more resistant to acid and, consequently, less susceptible to tooth decay. The maximum concentration of sodium fluoride permitted in dental care products is 0.15% (1,500 ppm). Small children should only use a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste (fluoride content: 500 ppm) to avoid ingesting too much of the substance. Dentists recommend that children aged six and up use toothpaste that contains more than 1,000 ppm of fluoride.

Sodium fluoride offers three main benefits:

Unlike monofluorophosphate, a type of fluoride commonly used in conventional toothpastes, sodium fluoride is an inorganic fluoride that is free from phosphate compounds. Phosphates tend to cause irritation in many people with allergies. Sodium fluoride (not to be confused with sodium monofluorophosphate) does not carry this risk of irritation.

Sodium fluoride works quickly and naturally.

Several series of tests have demonstrated that sodium fluoride neutralises oral bacteria particularly rapidly.

Is fluoride poisonous?

There is no doubt that extreme overdoses of fluoride are harmful to the human body – but this holds true for other chemical substances, as well. It’s because fluoride can be found in so many things that enter our body every day, either intentionally or unintentionally – water, food, and the like – that many consumers are afraid that they will cross the line to an ‘overdose’ of fluoride if they use toothpastes that contain the chemical.

However, experts believe it is practically impossible to develop a true case of fluoride poisoning as a result of using certain toothpastes. For example, a 1-year-old child of average weight would need to ingest approximately 53 ml of toothpaste. That amount is much higher for adults; it’s essentially impossible for an adult to contract fluoride poisoning through the consumption of toothpaste.

Where does fluoride come from?

The sodium fluoride used in lavera Naturkosmetik’s products is a fine, white powder that is odourless and mild on the skin and mucous membranes.

In nature, fluoride is only found in combination with other substances. It makes up approximately 0.065% of the 16-kilometre top layer of Earth’s crust. Fluoride can also be found in many types of igneous rock. The most important fluoride mineral is calcium fluoride. Additionally, fluoride can be found in a number of different types of rock, including cryolite, apatite, topaz, mica, and many more.

Traces of fluoride compounds can also be found in many organisms. Tea, asparagus, and fish have a very high fluoride content. Foods containing fluoride include table salt, drinking water, and milk.

Why doesn't lavera use fluoride in its children's gel toothpaste?

The sodium fluoride used in lavera Naturkosmetik’s products is a fine, white powder that is odourless and mild on the skin and mucous membranes.

Many parents are worried that small children ingest a dangerous amount of fluoride when they swallow toothpaste. The musculature of babies’ and children’s mouths is not yet fully developed, which is why they swallow toothpaste more often than older children and adults. Children under three often swallow up to 60% of their toothpaste.

This is why lavera offers basis sensitiv Organic Strawberry & Organic Raspberry Gel Toothpaste for baby teeth. For older children, lavera Sensitive Toothpaste is a very good alternative.
