BasicBites® Soft Chews Help Maintain Enamel Health and Support a
Normal Oral pH Environment
converged in Las Vegas to attend RDH "Under One Roof." At this annual
conference, dental professionals sampled BasicBites® and "Took the Bite"
for supporting enamel health. These seriously delicious soft chews bathe teeth
with a vital blend of nutrients that fuel and boost the mouth's natural defenses.
Ortek's patented arginine bicarbonate, calcium carbonate technology that
supports a normal and healthy oral pH environment. Arginine, bicarbonate
and calcium are key nutrients found in healthy saliva. BasicBites mimic
saliva's profound benefits for maintaining healthy teeth. Two BasicBites
a day are recommended for children over six and adults. BasicBites
are essential for the millions of individuals with dry mouth and those
with diets high in sugars.
The revolutionary arginine bicarbonate, calcium carbonate technology
in BasicBites was developed at Stony Brook University School of
Dental Medicine and is based on over 40 years of research in the
field of oral biology. Stony Brook researchers discovered beneficial
oral bacteria living on tooth surfaces and found that these good bacteria
favor and convert arginine (a common amino acid found in saliva)
into tooth friendly buffers. This results in immediate and sustained
alkali production and helps support the existing and healthy pH (acid/base)
balance on tooth surfaces. In a neutral and normal oral pH environment,
calcium can return to the teeth - a process called remineralization.
Bicarbonate provides additional buffering and supports the benefits
of arginine and calcium.
"BasicBites received an incredibly enthusiastic reception from
dedicated hygienists at the RDH 'Under One Roof' conference,"
said Shannon Nanne, RDH, Director of Professional Relations
and Education for BasicBites. "These leading dental professionals
soon realized that BasicBites are a delicious option to help
maintain their patients' dental health. Our 'I Took the Bite' campaign
was a tremendous success."
Sugar free BasicBites are 20 calories each and, as an added benefit,
are an excellent source of calcium. BasicBites are available
online at www.basicbites.com.
