The Science Behind Nano-Hydroxyapatite
Scientifically proven to strengthen and protect your teeth.
History of Nano-Hydroxyapatite (nHAp)
In the late 1970’s that NASA scientists searched for a cure for Astronauts returning from zero gravity environments that were experiencing bone and tooth enamel loss.
Their treatment included introducing Nano-Hydroxyapatite (a naturally occurring mineral that makes up 97% of tooth enamel) into toothpaste to help restore and remineralize tooth enamel.
The mineral was so effective that a Japanese toothpaste company, Sangi, purchased the patent from NASA in 1980 to use in toothpaste. The rest is history.
For over 40 years, nHAp in toothpaste has proven to be be the most effective solution for helping to stop tooth day all over the world.
The 10% Difference
Nano-hydroxyapatite has been clinically proven to remineralize tooth enamel at the same level as fluoride when used at the correct concentration, 10%, and the correct partial size. While other brands may include nHAp, Dr. Jen's includes the full 10% for optimal results.

How does nano Hydroxyapatite work, and can I see the clinical studies?
Nano Hydroxyapatite is bio-compatible with tooth enamel. It enters the pores of the enamel and exposed dentin to remineralize enamel helping to prevent tooth decay. See study https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4252862/

Why is Silk Floss more prone to break when flossing?
Unlike plastic floss, which is more durable and leaves microplastics in your mouth to be swallowed, silk is natural and easier to break when it comes in contact with sharp surfaces between the teeth. Sharp surfaces between the teeth could result from a chipped tooth, decay, or filling starting to break down. If you are breaking floss between any areas of your teeth, bring these areas between teeth to your dentist’s attention to help avoid more advanced dental work in the future.
