The fluid has the effect of returning the acidified oral cavity to neutrality and recrystallizing the mineral components dissolved from the teeth to repair the tooth surface (remineralization), reducing the amount of secretion. It seems that the risk of dental caries will increase. 3M Japan has released a new product, "Clean Pro Toothpaste," which supports the function of such a liquid by brushing teeth.
The feature of this product is that it contains mineral components (phosphoric acid and calcium) contained in the fluid in addition to fluorine, which promotes the tooth restoration effect. It is difficult for both to coexist with the conventional technology, and only fluorine was used for many toothpastes, but this time it seems that they succeeded in simultaneous compounding with their own technology.
I'm using it immediately, and although I don't know the status of remineralization, I was happy to see that the dullness of my teeth disappeared. This is a dental clinic monopoly product sold as the company's first "preventive dental product". Please note that you cannot purchase at drug stores (see 3M's "Tooth! Navi" site for handling clinics).
Of course, it is also important not to reduce the daily amount of fluid to prevent dental caries. There are three glands in the oral cavity, the parotid gland, the sublingual gland, and the submandibular gland, and it is said that it is also effective to massage these glands when waking up or before eating.
By the way, this information was provided at the "Za 3M Seminar" held in conjunction with the launch of this product. The theme of this day was "fluorine", and I learned that it is actually useful in various places other than oral care.
For example, a water-repellent and antifouling spray that was very active during this period. 3M's long-selling product "Scotchgard" is said to be the company's first hit fluorochemical product.
In addition, although it is rarely seen in direct life, the liquid called "3M Fluorinert Fluorinert Inactive Liquid", which has excellent electrical insulation, uses the characteristics of not deteriorating objects in addition to cooling Shinkansen and supercomputers. It is also used for preserving old documents.
When I think of 3M, I had a strong image of stationery and sponges , including "Post-it," but I realized once again that I am being taken care of everywhere in my life. With this entry into the dental field, expectations are high for further product expansion.
