Why the Elemental Oral Care Kit is especially effective during pregnancy.
Pregnant women struggle with gagging: by limiting bacterial growth in the 1st place, it will be easier to clean your mouth, with less effort. Becoming less depending on simply brushing more.
Why does it get such good results?
Because our bodies produce less saliva while we sleep, this creates ideal conditions for bacteria to grow. So when we wear the guard after our brushing our teeth, we give our mouth 8 hours to regain its strength while having less bacteria to worry about. Only brushing sees the bacteria growing again the moment you stop brushing.
While mouthwashes give us a very refreshing feeling, a lot of them tend to dry out our mouth. Once again, this creates an better environment for bad bacteria to grow. By swooshing and swallowing our probiotics, we put good bacteria in our mouth that compete with bad bacteria for the same nutrients.
This means effectiveness throughout the lifespan of the good bacteria (5-6 hours) rather than just the moment after brushing.
The secret ingredient are zinc ions. This could sound scary, but don't worry: it's what the human skin uses to protect itself from bacterial overgrowth and infection. Our big breakthrough was that we were able to incorporate this mechanism in a night guard in such a way that it never even fades away. What a time to be alive.
While our blend of probiotics are confidential to protect our innovation, you can rest assured all the types of bacteria used are ones that naturally occur in our mouth. So as natural as can be and safe for pregnant women as you already have them in your mouth.
